AMD sued by Opti

Posted on Thursday, Nov 16 2006 @ 16:03 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Chip designer Opti filed a patent infringement lawsuit against AMD, after reaching an out of court settlement in a similar case against NVIDIA earlier this year:
Opti, which licenses intellectual property for technology used primarily by PC and chip manufacturers, claims that AMD has infringed three of its patents for a technology known as "Predictive Snooping of Cache Memory for Master-Initiated Accesses," Opti said Thursday.

The complaint alleges that AMD has infringed the patents by making and selling CPUs (central processing units) and core logic products using Opti's predictive snooping technology.
