AMD wins anti-shredding order in Intel anti-trust case

AMD has won an anti-shredding order from a US court as part of its anti-trust case against Intel.

AMD has won an anti-shredding order from a US court as part of its anti-trust case against Intel.

AMD was concerned that documents relating to its case held by third parties could be disposed of before the case eventually comes to court.

The US district court in Delaware granted AMD the document protection order covering 32 companies almost immediately, according to AMD. The order covers PC manufacturers and PC resellers, including Dixons Group.

AMD says it has already received assurances from a number of the companies in the order that documents will be protected, but is yet to receive responses from the remainder, including Dixons.

AMD claims in its lawsuit that Intel acted in an anti-competitive way in stopping its microprocessors from getting a bigger slice of the main x86-based computer market. 

The case isn’t expected to come to court until next year. Intel has rejected AMD’s claims.
