AMD responds to R9 Fury X watercooling patent issues

AMD has issued a response to the Asetek cease & desist orders to halt sales of watercooled Radeon R9 Fury X video cards in the US. Asetek alleges that the R9 Fury X infringes upon its patents because it includes a closed loop liquid cooling solution from Cooler Master.

AMD on the other hand claims the jury in the case did not find the Fury X heatsink to be infringing on any of Asetek's patents:
“We are aware that Asetek has sued Cooler Master. While we defer to Cooler Master regarding the details of the litigation, we understand that the jury in that case did not find that the Cooler Master heat sink currently used with the Radeon Fury X infringed any of Asetek’s patents.”

There's nothing between-the-lines there. AMD is correct in stating that the original judgment did not explicitly name the R9 Fury X as an infringing product; whether that stays true remains to be seen, but for the moment, this is all accurate. AMD did not explicitly respond to our question if the company intends to continue shipping its Fury X, though we can infer from the above that there will be no market change at present.
