The European Commission has made public some of the evidence it used in imposing its record $1,5-billion fine on Intel in May.
E-mails from some PC vendors have been produced to show the Commission believes industry players were afraid to raise Intel's ire by buying rival AMD's chips.
For instance, one e-mail from a Dell executive warns his boss that buying AMD would jeopardise the company's discount from Intel.
The Commission also made public internal executives at Dell, Hewlett Packard, NEC, Lenovo, and Media Saturn Holding.
Intel has a 77% market share in the microprocessor market, with AMD as its main rival with 23%.
The Commission imposed the fine earlier this year after an investigation going back to 2004. Intel has appealed the ruling, and will probably be heard by the European Court of First Instance in Luxembourg next year.
