AMD has released a statement following yesterday's EC ruling against Intel and 1,06-billion Euro fine.

"Today's ruling is an important step toward establishing a truly competitive market," says Dirk Meyer, AMD president and CEO. "AMD has consistently been a technology innovation leader and we are looking forward to the move from a world in which Intel ruled, to one which is ruled by customers."
Tom McCoy, AMD executive vice -president for legal affairs, adds: "After an exhaustive investigation, the EU came to one conclusion – Intel broke the law and consumers were hurt. With this ruling, the industry will benefit from an end to Intel's monopoly-inflated pricing and European consumers will enjoy greater choice, value and innovation."
