Rambus and Nvidia sign Patent agreement

/ 5 years ago

Rambus, announced today it has signed a patent license agreement with NVIDIA.

The agreement covers the use of Rambus patented innovations in a broad range of integrated circuit (IC) products offered by NVIDIA. In addition, the two companies have settled all outstanding claims, including resolution of past use of Rambus’ patented innovations. The term of this agreement is five years; other details are confidential.

“This is an important license agreement as it settles our differences and allows us to move forward with NVIDIA, the leader in visual and parallel computing,” said Harold Hughes, president and chief executive officer at Rambus. “Looking forward, we have the opportunity to focus on developing innovative solutions in concert with our licensees to help bring compelling, innovative products to market.”

We are not sure what this means for Nvidia and Nvidia’s products but some are speculating this could mean the use of Rambus’ XDR2 memory in Nvidia’s latest graphics cards instead of GDDR5.
