+ - SPAM: Intel Files Suit, NVIDIA Responds Boldly 1

Submitted by

MojoKid writes "NVIDIA and Intel have always had an interesting relationship, consisting of a dash of mutual respect and a whole lot of under-the-collar disdain. And with situations such as these, it's easy to understand why. NVIDIA today has come forward with a response to a recent Intel court filing in which Intel alleges that the "four-year-old chipset license agreement the companies signed does not extend to Intel's future generation CPUs with 'integrated' memory controllers, such as Nehalem. NVIDIA CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, had this to say about the whole ordeal: "We are confident that our license, as negotiated, applies. At the heart of this issue is that the CPU has run its course and the soul of the PC is shifting quickly to the GPU. This is clearly an attempt to stifle innovation to protect a decaying CPU business.""

Intel Files Suit, NVIDIA Responds Boldly

  • It is in fact NVidia that opens mouth where it should not. License valid or not, using every opportunity to do their usual "CPU is dead, long live (Nvidia's) GPU!" line won't fool anyone but the dumbest. Here they go again - "We are confident that our license, as negotiated, applies. At the heart of this issue is that the CPU has run its course and the soul of the PC is shifting quickly to the GPU. This is clearly an attempt to stifle innovation to protect a decaying CPU business." Of course you are confide

If you can't understand it, it is intuitively obvious.
