Intel wants ATI subpoena
Intel has asked the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware permission to serve ATI a subpoena, which the company hopes will bolster its antitrust case against rival AMD. Retrieving the documents may reveal how AMD's planned acquisition of ATI will affect Intel's ability to compete in the processor market, according to IDG News. The case began in June of 2005 when AMD filed an antitrust suit against Intel, alleging that the chip giant discouraged PC manufacturers as well as retailers from purchasing AMD chips with its dominance of the x86 microprocessor market.
