Intel-AMD settlement won't change NY suit-source

NEW YORK Thu Nov 12, 2009 11:05am EST

NEW YORK Nov 12 (Reuters) - The settlement agreement between Intel Corp (INTC.O) and Advanced Micro Devices Inc (AMD.N) does not change a lawsuit filed against Intel last week by New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, a source familiar with the matter said.

Cuomo accused Intel, the world's largest chipmaker, of threatening computer makers and paying billions of dollars in kickbacks to maintain its market dominance. The lawsuit said Intel violated state and federal antitrust law and monopolized the market for personal computer chips at the expense of AMD.

The source was not authorized to speak publicly on the matter and asked to remain anonymous. (Reporting by Steve Eder; Editing by Lisa Von Ahn)
