AMD has settled a patent dispute with Intergraph that will cost AMD a maximum over $25 million over the next four years.
Intergraph developed its Clipper processor for use in workstations that the company used to sell. Workstations are heavy-duty desktop computers generally designed for jobs such as mechanical design.The settlement not only covers AMD, but also system builders who use AMD chips.
Intergraph switched to Intel chips in 1993. But the patents that Intergraph obtained when designing the Clipper chip have become the basis for a number of patent infringement suits filed by Intergraph against companies such as AMD, Dell, Gateway, Hewlett-Packard and Intel.
