Wow, destroying evidence showing the defendant might have been innocent, then charging them a billion dollar fine (of which the so called victim isn't seeing a dime).A copy of a yet-to-be-released report by the EU ombudsman was seen by the Wall Street Journal (subscription). It describes how an unidentified Dell executive told EC investigators in 2006 that AMD CPUs were problematic due to "very poor" performance. There's no way to know for sure what the exec said, however, because the EC didn't keep a written record of the conversation. And when Intel asked the Commission for a record of the interview, the EC denied that it ever took place and said there were no records of the meeting.
