Intel president and chief executive Paul Otellini responded to AMDs antitrust charges, stating that Intel will not change its business practices.
MANHASSET, N.Y. Two days after Advanced Micro Devices Inc. filed an antitrust suit against Intel Corp. accusing its archrival of unfair business practices, Intel president and chief executive Paul Otellini fired back, stating the company would not change its business practices and expects any court decision to be resolved in its favor.
"Intel has always respected the laws of the countries in which we operate," Otellini said in a statement. "We compete aggressively and fairly to deliver the best value to consumers. This will not change."
"Over the years, Intel has been involved in other antitrust suits and faced similar issues," Otellini said. "Every one of those matters has been resolved to our satisfaction. We unequivocally disagree with AMD's claims and firmly believe this latest suit will be resolved favorably, like the others."
Otellini's response, mirroring that of an Intel spokesperson in an earlier story, once again shows the company's willingness to defy its critics and fend off competitors, despite mounting scrutiny of its trade practices worldwide.
The antitrust suit, filed Monday, alleges Intel has been operating an unlawful monopoly in the x86 microprocessor market and has coerced computer makers, distributors, small system builders and retailers in their dealings with AMD.
