NVIDIA responds to Samsung's lawsuit

Tegra K1 vs Exynos 5433
Two months after NVIDIA filed patent lawsuits against Samsung and Qualcomm, Samsung sued them back. Now NVIDIA answers the part of the filing which claims the Tegra K1 is not the world's fastest mobile processor as advertised.

NVIDIA filed patent lawsuits against Samsung and Qualcomm two months ago, as the two companies allegedly used NVIDIA patented GPU technology without offering "proper compensation." Samsung decided to hit back and filed a counter-suit earlier this week, this time targeting both NVIDIA and Velocity Micro, a small Virginia-based company associated with the American global technology company.

Part of Samsung's recent filing focuses on the fact that NVIDIA's claim that the Shield tablet, which is powered by the Tegra K1 SoC, has "the world's fastest mobile processor" is, in fact, "false and misleading." According to Samsung, their Exynos 5433 chip is faster.

NVIDIA's official blog post reads "We aren’t yet ready to respond formally to Samsung’s lawsuit. But we can’t hold back on their false contention that Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 outperforms the SHIELD tablet."

To counter Samsung's accusations regarding the Tegra K1 chip, NVIDIA ran publicly available software benchmarks on both the Galaxy Note 4 and the Shield tablet. The results leave no room for any other comments, as you can see.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
