"A JAPANESE WEB reports that Intel will be found to have violated antimonopoly laws after it gave favourable prices to customers as long as they didn't use AMD processors."

"According to the Yomiuri Shimbun, the Japanese Fair Trade Commission (FTC) will tel Intel to halt the practice and will ask the chip giant how it intends to remedy the practice.
