Intel As was already revealed by eWeek earlier this week, the EU has imposed a massive fine on Intel for abusing its monopoly position. The fine is larger than the one given to Microsoft: 1.06 billion EUR, or 1.44 billion USD, opposed to the 899 million EUR fine imposed upon Microsoft.

Last major upgrade, I looked at Intel and AMD but it was Intel that had the benchmarks in my chip/price range. I wanted to go AMD but they didn't have an answer for the Q6600 quade core at that time. Next system build, I'll do the same; hope for AMD but it'll be the better bit of hardware. Same with the GPU, if AMD can make ATI viable again then my next rig may not be Nvidia. We'll see how the open driver comes along.
