Intel: NVIDIA chipset license doesn't cover Nehalem

Posted on Wednesday, February 18 2009 @ 18:29:39 CET by

Intel went to court to prevent NVIDIA from making chipsets for the Nehalem processor. Earlier today NVIDIA released a statement, in which they claimed the chipset license they negotiated four years ago covers the integrated memory controller from Intel's latest processors as well, but Intel begs to differ:
Intel has filed suit against NVIDIA seeking a declaratory judgment over rights associated with two agreements between the companies.

The suit seeks to have the court declare that NVIDIA is not licensed to produce chipsets that are compatible with any Intel processor that has integrated memory controller functionality, such as Intel's Nehalem microprocessors and that NVIDIA has breached the agreement with Intel by falsely claiming that it is licensed.

Intel has been in discussions with NVIDIA for more than a year attempting to resolve the matter but unfortunately we were unsuccessful. As a result Intel is asking the court to resolve this dispute.

It is our hope that this dispute will not impact other areas of our companies' working relationship.
