What’s it look like when two 800 lb. gorillas engage in brutal battle? Literally, it’s probably pretty scary, but we’ll find out the figurative answer soon enough, because today Quanta – the world’s largest contract notebook maker – slapped AMD with a breach of contract lawsuit. The company claims that AMD (and ATI) sold them defective chips that overheated and caused NEC-branded laptops Quanta made to malfunction, dealing Quanta “significant injury to prospective revenue and profits.”
By the way, that's not an image of one of the malfunctioning notebooks. Quanta simply says the AMD chips didn't meet heat tolerances -- no exploding involved.
