Skype's decision to release Intel-only features on its newest software refresh may have been a poor idea

I think the point is that it is really a limitation Skype has created for AMD chips. The optimization would work for both Intel and AMD without change, but Skype decided for some reason to make it work for Intel only.

Plus, Skype isn't the one getting in trouble here, AMD is trying to prove that Intel is doing something wrong. The equivalent graphic card situation would be if ATI allegedly payed Valve to halve the performance of HL2 on NVIDIA cards by simply not displaying every other frame rendered. And if ATI had 80% of the market share and was being accused of being a monopolist.
