Intel: Renegotiation with NVIDIA is still possible if we win

Posted on Wednesday, February 18 2009 @ 19:04:45 CET by

Intel told Bit Tech that they wouldn't rule out a renegotiation with NVIDIA over the chipset license. Intel states they believe the current chipset license doesn't allow NVIDIA to make chipsets for Nehalem processors, and say there are several options available if NVIDIA loses the suit, including re-negotiating the license.
"I wouldn't rule out a re-negotiation if we win the suit," said Intel spokesperson Chuck Mulloy in a telephone interview. "There are options available to us and re-negotiating the license is one of them."

But because one of Intel's allegations is that Nvidia is falsely claiming that it has a license, would Intel terminate the license if it prevailed in this case? "The other options we have are confidential at this time and we're not willing to discuss them," explained Mulloy.

At the same time though, he was also keen to make it clear that Intel wasn't suing Nvidia. Intel is not seeking damages and is merely asking Nvidia to pay its legal fees should it prevail - a standard practice in court cases.
