I am sure this has been happening for years and will continue to get worst as the black market expands

Actually, I think it is good news. People only fake valuable objects like diamonds and gold pieces. It just comes with the territory. But it will be bad news for the criminals who are caught.

Yeah this doesn't hurt AMD too much, and shows the interest in the market to create bootlegs. Intel has had the same issues in the past, same with Microsoft and other giants. "Genuine" windows machines in Asia are primarily, not, Genuine. There was a millions of fake XP copies being sold in China before stiffer regulations.

Not that this isn't true, but either nobody set the date correctly or this article is three years old....

My bad I was reading this on my cell, it prompted on the front page of the site so I assumed it was recent.

Still interesting news. I didn't know. Doesn't hurt anything.
