Silicon Graphics Inc., newly escaped from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, has launched a patent infringement action against chip-maker ATI Technologies. SGI claims that ATI's Radeon graphics chips infringe one if SGI's US patents (patent no. 6,650,327, aptly titled 'Display system having floating point rasterization and floating point framebuffering"?) relating to enhanced graphics processing. SGI has licensed its patent to several of ATI's competitors.
The complaint seeks an injunction and unspecified damages.
