It's official on Groklaw - AMD has filed antitrust on Intel.

AMD's press release has more:

The 48-page complaint, drafted after an intensive investigation by AMD?s lead outside counsel, Charles P. Diamond of O?Melveny & Myers LLP, details numerous examples of what Diamond describes as ?a pervasive, global scheme to coerce Intel customers from freely dealing with AMD to the detriment of customers and consumers worldwide.? According to the complaint, Intel has unlawfully maintained its monopoly by, among other things:

* Forcing major customers such as Dell, Sony, Toshiba, Gateway, and Hitachi into Intel-exclusive deals in return for outright cash payments, discriminatory pricing or marketing subsidies conditioned on the exclusion of AMD;
o According to industry reports, and as confirmed by the JFTC in Japan, Intel has paid Dell and Toshiba huge sums not to do business with AMD.
o Intel paid Sony millions for exclusivity. AMD?s share of Sony?s business went from 23 percent in ?02 to 8% in ?03, to 0%, where it remains today.
