AMD Japan sues Intel Japan for $55 million

Filed under
Legal

Advanced Micro Devices Inc.'s Japan unit said Thursday that it has filed two lawsuits against Intel Corp.'s Japanese unit for $55 million in damages. Under the lawsuits, AMD Japan accuses Intel of violating Japan's antitrust laws, and says Intel's trading practices have caused damage to AMD.

In March, Japan's Fair Trade Commission ruled that Intel's Japan unit was violating antitrust laws in the methods it used to sell its computer chips. The government anti-monopoly body ordered the company to stop those practices.

AMD earlier this week filed a broad antitrust suit against Intel in the United States, accusing its rival of using illegal inducements and coercion to dissuade companies from buying AMD's computer chips.

That lawsuit alleges that Intel has engaged in a "relentless" global campaign to maintain a monopoly over microprocessors, the chips used in most computers.

Intel, the world's largest chipmaker, has denied wrongdoing.

"We unequivocally disagree with AMD's claims and firmly believe this latest suit will be resolved favorably, like the others," Intel President and Chief Executive Paul Otellini said in a statement.

  • Five essential must-have apps for Android Wear
    The whole smartwatch shebang is still a rather confusing mini-mess, where manufacturers are not very certain on how to position their gizmos, while users are not entirely sure that a glorified timepiece with the ability to vibrate when you get an email is worth shelling out $300 for. Well, at least that was the case until the recent few months, when smartdevice makers realised that people wouldn't mind paying a premium price for a watch, as long as it doesn't look like a fitness tracker with a glowing screen, but actually resembles a timepiece you wouldn't mind being seen in public with. Nowadays, we have the Moto 360 (which still doesn't appeal to many, due to simple looks and the infamous cut-off at the bottom of its circular screen), the Asus ZenWatch, and the upcoming LG Watch Urbane, which will surely attract more eyes to the wearable tech market (and we are not even mentioning the amount of traction the Apple Watch will bring along as well).

  • A review of Android for Work: Dual-persona support comes to Android
    If you work in an office environment, you probably know a few people—maybe a lot of people—with two smartphones. One is a personal phone full of pictures of the family, games, social networking, and sports stuff, and the other is a company-issued smartphone full of e-mail, appointments, contacts, and documents. With two phones, your IT department has full control over your work data and can remotely wipe it, and they never get to see your personal pictures or other information. It's a workable setup, but the downside is all the duplication—you have two phones, two chargers, and almost no free pocket space. The other alternative is BYOD—Bring Your Own Device—in which the IT department takes over and installs a bunch of company software to your personal phone.
