Internet Security Threat Report 2014

A report on a stocks and shares investment site has revealed how serious AMD is about following Intel down a rigorous route to the corporate marketplace. Paul Engel, who won our reader of the month award earlier this year, has published details of AMD's conditions for using the Athlon logo on Silicon Investor.

Its minum size must be one inch by one inch, and it must use a stringent set of colour options, with PMS numbers quoted. The trademark is AMD Athlon and there must be a space between AMD and Athlon." In each publication that uses the "AMD Athlon" trademark, provide a trademark attribution notice that includes all AMD trademarks used in that publication, material, or item," the document says.
