Legal Intel and main (and only?) rival AMD have long been embroiled in legal battles regarding antitrust and patent issues. On top of that, antitrust regulators all over the world are investigating Intel for possible antitrust violations, so it looks like Intel needed to close off at least one flank: the company has reached a settlement with AMD, ending all legal disputes between the two chip makers. Intel will pay 1.25 billion USD to AMD.

I give it 3 years tops.

My guess is both will try to enter the small device market (like cell phones) and get caught up in legal battles again. The want of money caused the problems and money can only fix them for so long.....
