Windows 7: NVidia Banned from Own GPUs

NVidia Banned from Own GPUs

Quote:
PATENT TROLL OUTFIT Rambus has managed to win a ruling that effectively means that graphics chip designer Nvidia is banned from importing the chips it uses in just about every one of its products.
The ruling affects not only the Green Goblin but all of its manufacturing partners, the companies that actually manufacture the graphics cards based on its GPU chips. Nvidia took the lead in the legal defense for the other named parties, which include Asustek, HP and Microstar International (MSI) among others.

It's a publication where you need to take most, if not all, reports with a pinch of salt.

Or you could read the ruling yourself,

which is linked to in the Inquirer article. A little too much legal mumbo jombo for me, but it is there.

It's True: The ruling gives nVidia a 'Cease and Desist' order because they weren't paying Rambus royalties on what ended up being judged as Rambus' Intellectual Property. The end result will involve large sums of money moving from nVidia to Rambus, and the end consumer will be inconvenienced with slightly higher prices and possibly a short interruption of the flow of parts.

Business as Usual, tho: Just RAMBUS bending another corporation over in Patent court. They're not a technology company any more. Rather a bunch of professional patent trolls.
