[Nvidia]Intel to Pay NVIDIA Technology Licensing Fees of $1.5 Billion - Page 5

post #41 of 42
What you see is the payout to a gambling pot, where one side was holding the right cards, Intel called NVIDIA (To the courts), didn't expect NVIDIA to pull out a royal flush on them (1,600+ Patents) and bend Intel over, of course at this poker table it's like a pauper taking on a multi-billionare, Intel laughs and say, "That's pretty nice, but this game has just started." (Nods to bouncer & bouncer smiles)

So, NVIDIA holding a very clutch hand early on is playing that hand to the bitter end, but unfortunately, NVIDIA knows where Intel is going with their CPU/GPU Chips and just wants to play their hand out before the smack down comes...

Intel has the deck stacked already, wanted NVIDIA to get confident it's actually someone in this game called the Tech Race, where the consumers run to the stores to get the latest and greatest, but the race eventually has to come to an end..

When will Intel pull out the mighty Trump Hand? Who knows, Ivy Bridge maybe?

We can only watch on the side lines in amusement as they feed technology to the clueless consumers who don't realize they are just paying for research, like Intel is now, and of course any other cost incurred to the big Business / Near Monopolized market.

Sure we could look at AMD, coming out with bulldozer, I suppose that's their last attempt to stay in this fight, but I know Intel's history, like they did with other technology, if it's out there, they will buy it up or make their own version of the technology one way or another. (Steal it more or less)

So when the big dogs own all the rights, it entitles them to make the super chip, and that's pretty much what all this boils down to, a pile of chips...

(I suck at writing, but I hope this analogy doesn't come of as some quack writer who has no clue what he is talking about, truly I don't)

Now that you've heard my story, I'm going to end this thread with a big nice, HA HA HA, he who laughs last, laughs the hardest!

So... How's Larrabee going? A few billion and a few years.... and nothing to show for it?
