  1. Rambus has scored a big win in the ongoing patent-infringement lawsuit it filed with the U.S. International Trade Commission against Nvidia. The case dates back to July 2008, when Rambus accused the graphics firm of violating 17 of its patents and asked for an exclusion order barring the importation and sale of concerned products. Over the years, many of those claims were either dropped by Rambus or terminated by the ITC. But last January, of the five patent claims still determined valid, Nvidia and several of its OEM partners were found guilty of infringement on three.

  2. Lol, wow. I company that receives annual revenues from the lawsuits it makes, and eventually wins. Hey, it sounds like a pretty profitable business model, if you ask me. :)

    Well Rambus has lost a lot more money from its own violations, than it has won.

    Ah rambus, designer of the Xtreme Data rate memory interface, commonly used in PS3s. That's how I mainly know them for. You know, it's extremely well hearted that NVIDIA would do this, and I'm glad both sides are seeing win-win in such an occasion.
