Intel has received a supplementary Statement of Objections (SSO) from the European Commission, adding to the abuse of dominance allegations made in a Statement of Objections (SO) issued in July 2007. The SSO introduces three allegations that Intel abused its dominant position on the market for x86 Central Processing Units (CPUs), namely: (i) that Intel provided rebates to a leading PC retailer on the condition that it sold only Intel-based PCs; (ii) that Intel made payments to induce a leading original equipment manufacturer (OEM) to delay the launch of a product containing a rival CPU from its competitor AMD; and (iii) that Intel subsequently provided rebates to that same OEM on the condition that it obtained all its CPUs from Intel. Intel has eight weeks to reply to the SSO.
