The International Trade Commission has announced its findings in the NVIDIA/Rambus patent infringement lawsuit and it's not the sort of ruling Team Green would've preferred. The commission found NVIDIA to be in violation of three Rambus patents. The trade panel also granted an injunction Rambus had requested, which theoretically prevents NVIDIA and the various companies attached to the lawsuit (Asus, HP, Palit, and MSI among others) from selling products that contain the infringing IP. This last bit sounds more ominous than it actually is; there's a 60-day window before the injunction takes effect and NVIDIA believes it has other options.
Advanced Micro Devices passed Nvidia in graphics chip shipments in the second quarter, according to a report from a marketing research on Wednesday, adding to Nvidia's woes.

It comes with 336 CUDA cores, 56 texture units & 32 raster operators. The texture fillrate is 44.8 Gtexels/s, pixel fillrate is 25.6 GTexels/s & the memory bandwidth is 128GB/s. Without a doubt, this is the best bang-for-the-buck video card currently on the planet.
These drivers adds support for Nvidia's 3D Vision Surround and performance increases for the Geforce GTX 400 serie.
Built from the ground up for DirectX 11, GeForce GTX 460 delivers the ultimate next generation gaming experience. With DirectX 11 tessellation performance, GTX 460 packs highly detailed visuals into your games - without sacrificing high frame rates. And with NVIDIA 3D Vision™, PhysX®, and CUDA™ technologies, GeForce GTX 460 powers all the incredibly realistic effects that your games can throw its way.
Nearing a 52-week low
Recent volatility in the market has affected all tech stocks, but thanks to compounding concerns and poor analyst ratings, Nvidia has seen a sharp fall over recent months.
Two months ago Nvidia was trading at $16.99, a month ago it was down to $12.10 and now it closed at $10.34. Some 18 months ago, the stock was selling at $7.95, but it recovered to $18.68 in December 2009. Before the onset of the recession, in mid-2007, the stock was trading above the $35 mark.
This is a beta driver release from the Release 256 family of drivers (versions 256.xx to 259.xx). This driver package supports GeForce 6, 7, 8, 9, 100, 200, 300, and 400-series desktop GPUs as well as ION desktop GPUs.
For most people, there is no such thing as a CPU vs. GPU battle, but for companies like Intel and NVIDIA, there is such a thing, and it's heated. Naturally, gaming wouldn't be stellar if the only acceleration came from the GPU, and likewise, we wouldn't get too far with our OS running off of a GPU, but in between, there exists a battleground where neither is prepped to come out victorious.
All about the GTX 400 series
Nvidia has rolled out its WHQL certified 257.21 Geforce driver with support for Geforce 6, 7, 8, 9, 100, 200, 300 and of course, the 400 series graphics cards as well as the ION GPUs. The new version of the Geforce driver is, as expected, all about Geforce GTX 400 series and brings numerous new features as well as performance improvements for the noted series.
