Buy up those GTX460s now!

or you might not be able to get one if you live in the US.

RAMBUS has won the suite and the ITC is calling for a ban on the import of some products containing nVidia chips. I don't know what those products include, but either way this isn't good.

If this does cause a ban it will mean a shortage of nVidia cards which will probably mean a jump in the cost of 58xx series cards again.

Looks like nVidia is going to pay license fees to RAMBUS to curb a ban:

Quote:
WASHINGTON (Dow Jones)--The U.S. International Trade Commission ruled Monday that graphics-chip maker Nvidia Corp. (NVDA) infringed patents held by Rambus Inc. (RMBS) and said it will issue an order that bars the importation of some Nvidia products into the U.S.

After the ITC announced its decision, Nvidia said it will pay to license Rambus' technology.

This will allow us and our partners to continue our business under the terms of that ...

Bloody disgusting if you ask me. RAMBUS are literally just around to sue people nowadays. Their tech is oldhat and anything derived from it could be considered entirely new tech IMO.

RAMBUS es me off like no other. If IIRC, RAMBUS was in JEDEC, but pulled out at the last minute when specs for RAM were being discussed. They then patented everything that was talked about at the JEDEC meetings.

If my memory is right, then RAMBUS is nothing but patent trolls. They are just as bad as SCO!
