AMD not worried about Intel cross-licensing threat

Posted on Monday, May 18 2009 @ 15:17:32 CEST by

Last Friday Benjamin Williams, AMD's corporate vice president and Asia-Pacific general manager, told ZD Net that AMD is not concerned over Intel's threat to terminate the cross-licensing agreement between the two companies. This agreement gives AMD the right to manufacture x86 processors, among other things.
In an interview Friday with ZDNet Asia, Benjamin Williams, AMD's corporate vice president and Asia-Pacific general manager, dismissed Intel's actions as a media blitz and said the issue has since "died down".

"It's one of those areas that we weren't concerned with, [and] we obviously would not have done and structured the deal the way we had, thinking there was some challenge with the licensing and structure," he noted. "You're not hearing anything about [the issue] now; we're not concerned with it."

Adding that "the license goes both ways", Williams said the agreement also impacts, among others, Intel's Nehalem architecture and integrated memory controller. "What [Intel] neglected to [say] is that it's a cross-license agreement, not a one-way agreement."
