EU Adds More Antitrust Charges Against Intel

European Commission added three new charges against the chip maker, claiming that the company deliberately squeezed rival AMD out of the market.

BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) -- European Union regulators say they have added more antitrust charges to their case against chip maker Intel Corp. claiming that the company has deliberately squeezed rival AMD out of the market.

The European Commission said Thursday it has added three new charges against Intel, warning that it may order Intel to change its behavior under threat of large fines.

It says the company has given a major personal computer retailer substantial rebates in return for it selling only Intel-based computers, paid a manufacturer to delay an AMD range of computer processing units and given rebates to the same company in return for buying all its laptop CPUs from Intel.
