AMD and Intel Settlement

Well, those who wanted to see some dirty stuff are disappointed. Intel and AMD signed a settlement agreement.

One thing in the agreement is that Intel will not dope benchmarks:

"Intel shall not include any Artificial Performance Impairment in any Intel product or require any Third Party to include an Artificial Performance Impairment in the Third Party’s product.As used in this Section 2.3, “Artificial Performance Impairment” means an affirmative engineering or design action by Intel (but not a failure to act) that (i) degrades the performance or operation of a Specified AMD product, (ii) is not a consequence of an Intel Product Benefit and (iii) is made intentionally to degrade the performance or operation of a Specified AMD Product."
