Intel has a few extra weeks to prepare its defence against antitrust allegations, with the trial set for 5 January, a month later than US authorities had hoped.
A preliminary court meeting between the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Intel lawyers led to a compromise agreement on the date. The FTC had asked for the trial to start on the 7 December and Intel had called for a mid-February date, but the US judge steered a middle path.
According to a US Intel representative, the company will file a detailed reaction to the charges today. The action centres over whether Intel uses its 90 per cent-plus market share in the x.86 processor market to put anti-competitive pressure on its customers, including Compaq, Digital and Intergraph.
Intergraph has already filed its own antitrust suit against Intel, in a separate action from the FTC's.
