Intel sued for $500M

Alex Prestin writes "Some now-defunct chip maker is claiming Intel infringed on a patent they own for doing RISC->CISC translation. It's well known that the P6 and PII are really just RISC cores with translators on them for CISC, as are most "CISC" chips nowadays. Seems the particular method of conversion is what is being contested though. They're suing for half a billion dollars."
