Default VooDoo PC founder weighs in on AMD vs. Intel

Intel can be great to work with--but the company can also drop you like a hot potato, says the founder of VooDoo PC.

Rahul Sood, who serves as president and chief technology officer of the Canadian PC maker, said Wednesday that Intel has applied pressure in the past to change the "ratio" of Advanced Micro Devices processors to Intel chips in VooDoo systems.

"There have been times when Intel has requested that we build our ratio between the number of our AMD computers and the number of our Intel computers higher in favor of Intel--many times, as a matter of fact," Sood wrote in an e-mail to CNET News.com. "We've had allocation issues, where if we don't play ball, we don't get our allocation (of Intel chips). When Intel WAS supporting us they did an awesome job. When they stopped, it was noticeable."

That's what they say "either you play ball with me or get the hell out of my ballpark'.
