Samsung files complaint with ITC to block Nvidia chips from the U.S.

Samsung has filed a complaint with a US International Trade Commission asking them to block imports of NVIDIA’s computer graphic chips in the U.S. markets.


The South Koeran tech giant is urging the agency to ban Nvidia’s GeForce graphics chips and Tegra mobile processors. It has accused Nvidia of making false claims about its products and infringing upon several chip related patents.The complaint is a counter-attack on Nvidia when it filed an infringement complaint against Samsung back in September.

Meanwhile, Samsung also counter sued Nvidia in October over false benchmark results. It accused Nvidia of misleading consumers by revealing false benchmark test results for its Shield Tablet in comparison with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Samsung which had filed the lawsuit in a U.S. federal court on Nov. 4, is seeking damages for deliberate infringement of several technical patents, including a few that govern the way semiconductors buffer and use data.
