January 05, 2012

Jan. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Quanta Computer Inc., the world’s largest contract maker of notebooks, sued Advanced Micro Devices Inc. for breach of contract, alleging the chipmaker sold defective products.

AMD and its ATI Technologies Inc. unit sold chips that didn’t meet thermal tolerances and were unfit for particular purposes, Taoyuan, Taiwan-based Quanta claimed yesterday in a filing in federal court in California. The chips were used in notebooks made by Quanta for NEC Corp., according to the filing.
