Samsung sues in bid to block smartphones with Nvidia chips inside
In a move that warms up the already-blazing war between the two tech companies, Samsung has filed US International Trade Commission complaint to block Nvidia’s chips from the US market.
Samsung and Nvidia have since the beginning of this year, been playing a cat and mouse game. First, it started with the latter accusing Samsung for cheating in benchmark results; This the company said that Samsung did by adding a few lines of code that tweaks up the ‘performance’ of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 when faced with a benchmark app.
Samsung has since fired back, accusing Nvidia of being the real crook, saying the US company knows not what it is saying and that it has kept quiet while Nvidia stole some of it’s tech which it used in some Nvidia GeForce and Tegra chipsets.
Samsung had earlier this month, dragged the same company to court for faking benchmark scores for it’s Tegra K1 processor when pitted against Samsung’s Exynos 5433 chipset. That suit was a counter suit against the one Nvidia placed against Samsung and Qualcomm for infringing upon several of it’s GPU related patents.
