Σήμερα η nVidia και επίσημα ανακοίνωσε τις σχέσεις στοργής και αγάπης μεταξύ των δύο κολοσσών της τεχνολογίας με την συμφωνία της πρώτης να πληρωθεί απο την Intel $1,5 δισεκατομμύριο σε άδειες που με λίγα λόγια δηλώνουν το “δέσιμο” των δύο εταιριών ωστε να εργασθούν απο κοινού για την παραγωγή προϊόντων υψηλής τεχνολογίας. Αυτό σημαίνει πως NVIDIA και Intel απο εδώ και στο εξής θα πηγαίνουν χέρι-χέρι και για εμάς μόνο κάτι καλό μπορεί να σημαίνει, αφου σε λίγο καιρό θα είμαστε έτοιμοι να απολαύσουμε τους καρπούς αυτής της “σχέσης” με καινούργιες κάρτες γραφικών, νέους επεξεργαστές, νέα chipsets που θα ανεβάσουν πολλά επίπεδα επάνω σε σχέση με τους υπολογιστές που ξέρουμε σήμερα. Η τεχνογνωσία πλέον θα μοιραστεί μεταξύ τους, αυτό και μόνο λέει πολλά, δεν χρειάζεται να πώ εγώ κάτι άλλο.

NVIDIA and Intel have also agreed to drop all outstanding legal disputes between them.
“This agreement signals a new era for NVIDIA,” said Jen-Hsun Huang, NVIDIA’s president and chief executive officer. “Our cross license with Intel reflects the substantial value of our visual and parallel computing technologies. It also underscores the importance of our inventions to the future of personal computing, as well as the expanding markets for mobile and cloud computing.”

Under the new agreement, Intel will have continued access to NVIDIA’s full range of patents. In return, NVIDIA will receive an aggregate of $1.5 billion in licensing fees, to be paid in annual installments, and retain use of Intel’s patents, consistent with its existing six-year agreement with Intel. This excludes Intel’s proprietary processors, flash memory and certain chipsets for the Intel platform.

The existing agreement is to expire March 31, 2011.

Pursuant to U.S. GAAP, a portion of the proceeds will be accounted for and attributed to the settlement of prior legal claims. This amount, which NVIDIA anticipates to be less than $100 million, will be included in the company’s fourth-quarter results.

The balance of the licensing fees will be accounted for on a straight-line basis over the six-year term of the agreement. Accordingly it is anticipated that this would amount annually to approximately $233 million of operating income and an increase in net income of $0.29 per diluted share, on a full year basis.
