ITC judge rules that NVIDIA infringed on Samsung patents

In a tragic - for NVIDIA - reversal of fates, NVIDIA was found guilty of infringing on some of Samsung's patent related to graphics technology. This is the latest slap on the graphics chip maker's face after the ITC also ruled that neither Samsung nor Qualcomm infringed on NVIDIA's own patents. In a worst case scenario, the ITC could impose an import ban against NVIDIA's products, like its already very limited mobile and gaming devices. That is, if no settlement is reached in a few months pending a full review by the commission.

It treated its devices almost like a Nexus, with very minimal customizations and constant updates. The jubilation around that has somewhat died out, though NVIDIA is now trying to reclaim that title. It is teasing the upcoming update to its brand new SHIELD Tablet K1 that would make it the first tablet, or at least first non-Nexus tablet, to get Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

There might be a Tegra X1 NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet after all

Just last week, NVIDIA put out a new SHIELD Tablet, this time with "K1" appended to its name. It might have disappointed many who have been expecting, or at least wishing for, a refreshed gaming tablet with more up-to-date specs.

But if leaked details, which has already been taken down, found on GFXBench are any indication, NVIDIA might indeed have a Tegra X1 powered model coming soon.
