Surprisingly nVidia didn't sue Apple for PowerVR Graphics and also Intel who uses PowerVR for all its integrated graphics
Guy...guy...NVIDIA already in the silicon graphic bussiness
since 1994...(20 years)..
Im owning my 1st 3d card = 1997 Nvidia RIVA 128.
I think the ceo has his point about the patent lawsuit.They alreay win the lawsuit to Intel 2011.
As Samsung says it does sound like an issue in the supplier chain.
I don't know guys but even Microsoft tried suing samsung on patent problems. Maybe, there fishy inside that we don't know.
Sunday Roast, 05 Sep 2014I didn't say that. It should be Samsung's liabilty.Yes you did. That is exactly what you reply implies. And then some. You even kind of implied that it's worse than just this case.
Corporate lawyer dogs barking at each other until they mutually exchange bones and become friends once again. Typical story that keeps repeating in the industry with various players taking part. Nothing for users/consumers to be concerned or care about.
Why Samsung? and why now?? Everybody using it, get sue all player... and nvidia should sue them 10 years ago.. clearly he waiting the right time to grab some easy money from other's hardwork..
Anonymous, 05 Sep 2014False. Whoever is stealing the patent and then selling it should pay. Not the people buying it... moreAgreed.
This is as silly as if Continental would sue Micheline when they would sell their tires to VW.
CMG, 05 Sep 2014because samsung disagreed to pay for the patents owned by nvidia. Patents their suppliers need to pay for that all phones using all the chips in question also use. Not just Samsung.
they are suing qualcom and samsung,,, why stop there? might aswell sue the consumer for using qualcom's product too......
CMG, 05 Sep 2014because samsung disagreed to pay for the patents owned by nvidia. Agreed.
Lex79, 05 Sep 2014Yeah this is confusing to say the least. If gpu patents are being infringed, how is it that... moreBecause Samsung is the biggest it's easiest to milk the biggest cow. I don't see how it's samsung's fault here, since they don't make those gpu's, they just use them. Nvidia stop being a patent troll and sue gpu maker.
Sunday Roast, 05 Sep 2014It is because Samsung is trying to avoid paying patent fee. If you have a patent on something,... moreFalse. Whoever is stealing the patent and then selling it should pay. Not the people buying it.
So does that mean that we should be held accountable and pay royalties too for buying the devices in question?
Anonymous, 05 Sep 2014If you read it's not Samsung. The patents are with gpu venders. Ones all major phones are using.Yeah! Partly but it will affect Samsung also.
One-Four-One, 05 Sep 2014I have no idea why Samsung always gets into lawsuits problem... I mean there are also other ma... moreIt is because Samsung is trying to avoid paying patent fee. If you have a patent on something, it is your right to gain patent fee from those who want to use it. Filing a patent costs too much so you deserve some penny if others have intetest on it. If only Samsung respects these patent stuffs they wont have any problem with other companies.
