Bloomberg wrote on Friday that NVIDIA won the memory chip patent infringement case brought by Samsung. This trial is part of the ongoing patent war between the two firms, which was started a couple of years ago as NVIDIA demanded graphics licensing fees from Samsung.

This particular case involved four Samsung patents, but whittled down to just one as Samsung dropped one patent before the trial and the jude ordered a mistrial on two others.
Nvidia fended off a claim that it infringed a patent owned by Samsung, in a federal jury trial in Richmond, Virginia, said Friday. The case had originally started with four Samsung patents and was whittled down to just one after Samsung dropped one patent before trial and the judge ordered a mistrial on two others.

“We are pleased with the outcome of this case, which reflects the jury’s careful attention to the facts and the law that applied,” said Hector Marinez, an Nvidia spokesman.
In December, Samsung lost its ITC case against Samsung, and a trade judge ruled that NVIDIA infringed three Samsung patents. NVIDIA is appealing both decisions.
