Samsung Counter-sues Nvidia


Samsung has not just counter-sued Nvidia for allegedly infringing on 6 of their patents after Nvidia has filed complaints for infringing patents on their GPU technologies. Samsung are also claiming that Nvidia are cheating in benchmarks in order to claim that their Tegra K1 processor beats the Exynos 5433 chip used in their Galaxy Note 4, which is rather hypocritical of Samsung given they have been caught doing the same thing in the past.



NVIDIA says that they are still examining the complaint, but it's already rejecting all allegations that they have misled gamers with Shield tablet benchmarks claiming that both devices were using their stock, fresh-from-the-box software configurations.

Regardless or whether or not Samsung's claims are true true, it really comes acress the pot calling the kettle black. After all, Samsung are known to have inflated benchmark scores in the past, which led many to question the honesty of the mobile device maker.

Its hypocritical of Samsung but it'll be interesting to see if they are right. Mainly 'cause Nvidia's phone processors aren't that popular.Quote

that. Samsung won their lawsuit against apple and thought that they can just sue everybody in the hardware section... I don't like how they are playing now...
A war could have started between AMD and NVIDIA about "doctoring" the benchmarks but it just hasn't happend (yet)Quote

Expected really. I didn't think it was a good idea for Nvidia to pick a fight with a company as huge as Samsung is, but it'll be interesting to see how it plays out.

It's a broken system really.

If you just AMD and Nvidia for instance, AMD has patents that Nvidia infringes upon, but at the same time Nvidia has patents AMD infringes upon. But they can't really sue each other because they'll just be hit with a counter lawsuit in response.

Doesn't really mean much for the big companies, but the small startups are easily sued out of existence by big corporations. Definitely not good for competition.Quote

its a joke, patent infringement is rife in many industries. It only comes to lawsuits when someone gets but hurt about one thing or anotherQuote
