FTC may pave the way for x86 CPU from NVIDIA

Posted on Tuesday, December 22 2009 @ 00:50:29 CET by


FUD Zilla reports the FTC lawsuit against Intel may make it possible for NVIDIA to get into the x86 processor market.
In a lawsuit filed on Wednesday, FTC proposed a few dodgy points, most notable being number 17 and 18.

Number 17 states: "Requiring Intel to make available technology (including whatever is necessary to interoperate with Intel’s CPUs or chipsets) to others, via licensing or other means, upon such terms and conditions as the Commission may order, including but not limited to extensions of terms of current licenses."

...

The point number 18 states: "Prohibiting Intel from including or enforcing terms in its x86 licensing agreements that restrict the ability of licensees to change ownership, to obtain investments or financing, to outsource production of x86 microprocessors, or to otherwise partner with third parties to expand output."
