Bref... il s'agit donc encore d'une histoire de gros sous et il est fort probable que cela finisse une fois de plus, par le paiement de dommages et intérêts.
"Santa Clara, Calif.-based INTEL on
Friday filed suit in U.S. District Court in Delaware. The lawsuit alleges that
Via's P4X266 and P4M266 chipsets, which were released earlier this month,
infringe on five INTEL patents. S3, a former graphics chip powerhouse that is
working with Via on the chipsets, was also named as a defendant.
Via's two chipsets essentially allow computer makers to put DDR DRAM, a high-speed form of standard computer memory, inside computers with Pentium 4 chips. Currently, only Rambus memory can be used inside Pentium 4 computers, although chipsets that let PC makers use ordinary SDRAM will come out Monday. The complaint seeks damages, as well as a permanent injunction that would effectively prevent Via from selling the chipset."
