AMD wants Intel evidence from 30 firms

Delaware court agrees

Sponsored: Creating the Storage Advantage

Chip maker AMD has won the backing of a Delaware court to preserve evidence held by third parties which may be relevant to its ongoing legal battle with Intel.

The chip firm went to court in Delaware for Motion for Leave to Serve Document Preservation Subpoenas which was granted. This allows them to ask 30 named companies to keep any relevant evidence. It wants to preserve evidence without creating too much admin for the 30 firms.

AMD filed an anti-trust complaint against Intel last last week. The case accuses of Intel of applying unfair pressure on computer makers to force them to sign Intel-only contracts or to reduce their use of AMD chips. The 48-page complaint accuses Intel of "worldwide coercion". The company is calling on industry regulators to take action.

Separately AMD is seeking $50m in damages from Intel in Japan following findings from Japanese regulators that Intel broke anti-trust laws.
