Well I can see why Intel would want to dump AMD, AMD is making money for simply producing Intel chips, so no marketing or development is necessary. Even if they had to make less chips then Intel they are still making profit. And Intel probably felt they shouldn't have to share profit with AMD when AMD is in essence a subcontracted manufacturer of chips. And it seems AMD wasn't required to pay any sort or royalty to Intel which today would be completely fair. I think if Intel was paid royalties they never would have tried to dump AMD it would be like franchises of today, you make, sell and distribute my product and pay me a percentage. Well this still doesn't justify what Intel did later on but it does explain the dislike between the two companies.
