AMD really needs to hit a home run with their 4000 series mobile parts. They're still resigned to being a cheaper option in that segment.

Intel is really in a bad position here. So many OEMs depend on them. If AMD can't meet the demand you just can't buy CPUs in the stores.

Edit: It won't be easy for AMD to jump in mobile market. Intel probably has some sort of non-compete partner contract with manufacturers. Even if they would want AMD product they couldn't.

Maybe, but that would still be illegal like that last two times. (Though there's lot of other financial and logistical challenges an OEM would face to supporting two directly competing lines simultaneously)

Evga is Intel exclusive, Sapphire is AMD exclusive. There are those types of deals. Another thing. Intel probably offers much better support package and help with implementation. AMD doesn't have that kind of manpower. They probably just sell you the CPU and the Chipset and you deal with implementation alone. The same goes for the server market. With Intel you get a full on deal, with AMD you get parts and maybe some support.

That's quite different on the first bit, an OEM choosing to only supply one company isn't the same as a major company offering bribes or incentives to not use a smaller competitors products, one is a business choice and the other is breaking antitrust law through "unfair competition" as a result of undermining the free market (and it's hard to say there isn't legal precedent on that).
Second bit is completely true though, Intel has long offered hefty amounts of extra support to OEMs as an incentive, a significant portion of their revenue and expenditure is from services generally though.

Thanks for clearing out the first part. You should learn something new every day.
