Intel has agreed to pay the New York Attorney's Office (NYAO) $6.5m as part of a settlement to end a lawsuit that had been brought against the firm over allegations it abused anti-trust laws.
The firm was accused of using its market dominance to bully other firms into using its products and demand payments from firms such as Dell or HP.
The settlement reached between the two sides clears Intel of any wrongdoing with the fees paid by Intel covering the costs incurred by the government in pursuing the case.
Doug Melamed, senior vice president and general counsel at Intel, said the firm was satisfied with this outcome.
"Following recent court rulings in Intel's favour that significantly and appropriately narrowed the scope of this case, we were able to reach an agreement with New York to bring to an end what remained of the case," he said.
"We have always said that Intel's business practices are lawful, pro-competitive and beneficial to consumers, and we are pleased this matter has been resolved."
The case is one of several Intel has been contesting in recent year with the firm agreeing to pay arch rival AMD $1.25bn to close an anti-trust case in which AMD alleged that Intel was preventing it from doing business by offering financial sweeteners to PC makers.
Furthermore, the firm also received a fine of €1.06bn from the European Commission in 2009 for breaking European anti-trust regulations, the largest fine the body has issued. Intel is still in the process of appealing the fine.
