In the space of GPU, NVIDIA is the dominant party so it should come as no surprise that NVIDIA is protecting their niche space. The company has spent more than $9 billion developing their products through research and development. And it should also come as no surprise that as the leading GPU manufacturer and developer, NVIDIA has a massive patent portfolio that it can enforce against newcomers.

These are the types of high-profile patent cases that will last many years, likely include inter partes review, dispute over attorney fees and costs of the litigation.
