NVIDIA And Samsung Agree to Settle IP Litigation

NVIDIA and Samsung have agreed to settle all pending intellectual property litigation between the two companies, NVIDIA announced today.

The agreement will lead to the immediate dismissal of all pending IP litigation in U.S. district courts, the U.S. International Trade Commission and the U.S. Patent Office between the companies.

The settlement includes the licensing of patents by each company to the other, but no broad cross-licensing of patents or other compensation. Further details of the agreement are not being disclosed.

NVIDIA sued both Samsung and Qualcomm in September 2014, accusing them of infringing seven of Nvidia's GPU patents.

NVIDIA's statement makes no mention of Qualcomm, so the two may still be at loggerheads.

NVIDIA filed its complaints in federal district court and also with the U.S. International Trade Commission, asking it to block shipments of Galaxy phones and tablets with graphics processors from Qualcomm, ARM and Imagination Technologies.

Samsung countersued NVIDIA and Velocity Micro for patent infringement, and for supposedly false claims by Nvidia that its Tegra K1 was the world's fastest mobile processor. Samsung claimed its Exynos 5433 was faster in some benchmarks.
