AMD vs Intel Lawyers from Intel and AMD will meet for an initial court conference in the first week of August, over a month before Intel must file its response to AMD's allegations, court documents seen by The Register reveal.

AMD's legal action against its arch-rival, alleging the chip giant engaged in anti-competitive behaviour in violation of US antitrust law, is being heard by the US District Court of Delaware. The complaint was filed last month.

The latest court filing reveals Intel has until 6 September to respond the AMD's complaint. It also notes that Intel's Japanese subsidiary, Intel Kabushiki - aka Intel KK - has "acknowledged service of the complaint as if the same had been effected by the Japanese Central Authority", as per the Hague Convention. Essentially, the non-US company is accepting the remit of the Delaware court in this matter.

Earlier, AMD subpoenaed Fujitsu and Avnet, calling them to court at some as-yet-undecided point in the future to testify. AMD has already sent subpoenas to Ingram, Supermicro, CompUSA, Fry's and Office Depot, earlier court documents reveal. ®
