Default Intel files lawsuit against Nvidia

We have just learned that Intel filed suit against Nvidia late last night in which it alleges that the four-year old chipset license agreement the two companies signed is not valid for Intel's current and future generation CPUs with integrated memory controllers.

This includes Nehalem - a chip that Nvidia has repeatedly claimed it holds a chipset license for. Intel, as evidenced by this filing, begs to differ.

In some ways, this doesn't come as much of a surprise, since the relationship between the two companies has become increasingly tense over the past six to twelve months. Nvidia claims that the CPU has become a commodity item, while Intel claims the same has happened to the GPU.

NVIDIA is not licensed to produce chipsets that are compatible with any Intel processor that has integrated memory controller functionality
This affects more than just Nehalem parts. The next version of Atom has an integrated memory controller. In effect this would blanket ban NVIDIA from ever producing another chipset for an Intel product.
