Intel case called off – as predicted here

But a degree of consent is required

The case between US .gov and Intel has fallen over, as first predicted here. As revealed here earlier, Intel would never go through with the public humiliation of a court trial. On the 22nd of February, The Register had information to this effect. (Story: Intel to surrender to higher US authorities) This leaves one question, and the question is about Intergraph. An Intel spokesman would only say: "We think this is a win-win agreement. Terms of settlement have been reached. This agreement is subject to the agreement of the FTC. Intel is pleased with the terms of the agreement." Intel has dealt with a subdivision of the FTC, so it is possible that a reprieve for Chipzilla is premature. The spokesman would not say whether Intel will buy Intergraph or not. ®
