AMD Recently, AMD spun off its manufacturing business in a partnership with the Abu Dhabi government into Global Foundries. Apparently, Intel isn't very happy about this, and has said in correspondence to AMD that the patent cross-license agreement from 2001 has now been broken by AMD.

What's Intel up to?

This sounds like spin to me but I don't see what Intel stands to gain from this except perhaps to try to extort dollars from AMD.
Of course, anything they can do to delay AMD catching up in manufacturing is a win for Intel.
Quite frankly, while I applaud AMD for the design advances they've made commonplace ( largely technology acquired from the Alpha ), they missed an opportunity to catch up to Chipzilla years ago.
