AMD taunts Intel, hoists EU flag

AMD is flying the EU flag on its home page. And if the image doesn't convey the message, the caption certainly does.

Advanced Micro Devices is flying the European Union flag on its home page. A little gloating going on?

And if the image doesn't convey the message, the caption does: "European Commission finds Intel guilty of breaking antitrust laws, harming consumers."

That's not all. AMD's Break Free page is a treasure trove of information on the EU case and Intel's alleged bad behavior . "Read the European Commission's Press Release Detailing its Ruling Against Intel" and "Read the European Commission's Questions and Answers Detailing its Ruling Against Intel"--are a few of the selected readings.

AMD likes to say that it spearheaded the movement to dual-core processors (quoth AMD: "without AMD there would be no price pressure on Intel, dual-core processors would still be a year away"--quoting a 2006 media report on its Break Free site) and out-innovated Intel in the server market in the 2004 to 2006 time frame.

So, the first AMD 32-nanometer processor is due when exactly?
