So much for all those Rambus / NVIDIA fireworks we know you were hoping for -- the two companies just announced that the patent infringement proceedings begun last year have come to a close and the International Trade Commission has been asked to drop its investigation. According to the statement, "Rambus has conceded that NVIDIA products do not infringe on its four patents before the ITC." That's that -- guess we'll just have to get our kill-crazy destruction kicks elsewhere.
Update: Sigh -- Rambus has told MarketWatch it disagrees with NVIDIA's release, and that it's still litigating five more patents before the ITC. Round and round we go.
