UBS analyst believes Intel needs NVIDIA patents to fight AMD

Posted on Wednesday, December 01 2010 @ 00:47:06 CET by

UBS Securities analyst Uche Orji believes Intel is likely to offer NVIDIA a cash settlement to resolve the legal differences between the firms, as Intel is said to be wanting to get its hands on some of NVIDIA's graphics and parallel computing patents:
Intel had claimed violation of a 2004 license agreement from the two that prevented Nvidia from using chipsets containing Intel’s Nehalem and Westmere processors, and other parts as well.

“Given the current regulatory backdrop, we expect Intel to avoid the public scrutiny of a trial that could cloud its access to Nvidia’s graphics and parallel computing patents, and may therefore settle with Nvidia,” Orji writes. Intel wants Nvidia’s patents badly to fight AMD (AMD) in integrated graphics and parallel processing, Orji believes.
