Dell agrees to AMD subpoena request

Filed under
Legal

Dell Inc. does not plan to contest a subpoena from Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) asking for documents related to its purchases of processors from Intel Corp. over the past few years, and will preserve relevant e-mail from company leaders such as Kevin Rollins and Michael Dell as part of AMD’s antitrust lawsuit, Dell said in a court filing Wednesday.

Unlike a few of the other parties AMD has subpoenaed, such as NEC Corp. and U.K. PC retailer Dixons Group PLC, Dell did not file any objections to AMD’s request for documentation. The actions of the world’s largest PC vendor with respect to processor purchasing are a key component of AMD’s antitrust case against Intel, because Dell has repeatedly declined to purchase processors from AMD despite the smaller chip company’s recent success in the server market.
