AMD gets all heavy-handed

Must be those ex-Intel people at Chimpzilla

Reports are flying around like confetti on our favourite hardware sites that AMD has put the wheel clamps on breaches of its K7 non disclosure agreement (NDA). Leaks are feverishly being plugged by the chip contender, after AnandTech and FiringSquad produced authentic benchmark information+photos in the run up to the launch of the EV6 based K7. According to reports we have seen and verified, AMD is eager to stem any further leaks, hence the heavy handed action it seems to be taken. It's a bit like patched Bunny Suits, really. There are so many K7 evals out there that it will be quite impossible to prevent the truth getting out. Shame we didn't sue AMD, after all… ®
