You may remember Rambus for its RDRAM memory, which debuted in 1999 but quickly faded with the success of DDR. Rambus hasn't faded, however, as the company holds several patents that it licenses out to companies such as Intel, AMD, Infineon, Sony, and Toshiba. One company that it hasn't licensed to is Nvidia and Rambus claims that Nvidia is infringing upon 17 of its patents, filing suit last week. We'll have to wait and see how this will affect Nvidia.
