“Transmeta has sued Intel, claiming that its Pentium and Core PC processors violate Transmeta patents. Core processors appear in Apple’s Intel-based Macintosh line,” Robert McMillan reports for IDG News Service.
“The lawsuit alleges that Intel has violated ten patents covering processor design and power efficiency techniques. It was filed Wednesday in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware,” McMillan reports.
McMillan reports, “Transmeta is asking the court for damages, royalty payments, and an injunction barring Intel from selling infringing products. Intel’s Pentium III, Pentium 4, Pentium M, Core and Core 2 processors violate the patents, Transmeta claims.”
McMillan reports, “The lawsuit comes after the two companies failed to agree to licensing terms, said Transmeta’s President and Chief Executive Officer Arthur Swift.”
