nVidia may owe millions to OPTi

nVidia may owe millions to OPTi

Product image

OPTi, a well known intellectual property holding company have launched arbitration against nVidia stating that they are owed huge royalty fees for a patent on pre-snoop memory technology.

OPTi are a company who make all their revenue by enforcing the intellectual property rights granted to it by their ever expanding patent portfolio … they are claiming that nVidia are in breach of a contract made between the two companies back in 2006.

This particular technology has been built into nVidia’s graphics cards for a long time and was originally licensed by OPTI on the agreement that they would receive quarterly payments from nVidia worth $3.75 million dollars. OPTi are claiming that nVidia have failed to pay 5 payments and they could well end up owing as many as twelve additional payments if the case goes against them.

A similar case was brought against Apple for pre-snoop technology licensing agreements and they have been ordered to pay $21.7 million in damages, although it is said that Apple will be contesting this ruling.
