In response to an antitrust lawsuit from AMD, Intel says that AMD only has itself to blame for not having a bigger piece of the chip market.

Intel’s response came in the form of a 63-page document, which slammed AMD for not making wiser investments in manufacturing and technology.

“AMD’s complaint presents a case study in legal dissonance,” Intel said in its response, filed in U.S. District Court in Delaware. “Although AMD has purportedly brought its complaint to promote competition, its true aim is the opposite. Under the cover of competition law, AMD seeks to shield itself from competition.”

AMD’s accuses Intel of bullying computer makers into using only its products by threatening to stop selling to companies that bought from other chip-makers.

“Intel’s response is not surprising considering what they are trying to hide, but the facts of illegal monopoly abuse are clear and undeniable,” said AMD’s vice president for legal affairs, Thomas M. McCoy

These two companies have been at it for over a decade. They had another legal dispute back in 1991, but they managed to settle that one outside of the courtroom. The current case is scheduled for hearing in 2006.
