The European Commission (EC) accused [Intel] of paying a leading European retailer not to stock products containing chips made by rival AMD.

It is also accused of giving incentives to PC makers to switch to Intel chips.

Intel, which has eight weeks to respond to the allegations, said it was disappointed with the EC's claims.

The Commission has also accused Intel of paying the PC maker to delay the planned launch of a product containing AMD chips.

Intels been under a decent amount of investigation lately, from "breaking anti-trust laws" in NY to this. I guess we'll see what happens here.


European regulators have the power to fine Intel up to 10% of annual turnover if they find it guilty of stifling competition.

ouch
