Qimonda

Qimonda AG announced this week that it is supporting NVIDIA Corporation’s nForce 790i SLI platform with its new 1GB Aeneon XTUNE™ DDR3-1600 DRAM modules that have the "ability to provide high-level gaming performance at low voltage."

Rambus Inc. shareholders are wondering how DDR3 fits into the patent license agreement Rambus & Infineon (Qimonda) signed three years ago. With the XTUNE DDR3-1600 Dual Channel Kit (2x 1GB) available "now through the authorized Aeneon sales representatives and distributors for US$ 340.00" a 3.5% royalty would send nearly $12.00 to Rambus on the sale of each kit.

Correction:

"a flat rate payment of 'an amount of five million and eight hundred fifty thousand U.S. dollars (US $5,850,000), up to a cumulative amount not exceeding fifty million U.S. dollars (US $50,000,000)' would send nearly $00.00 to Rambus on the sale of each kit."
