„Discussions with Apple regarding license agreement“
Imagination Technologies Group plc (LSE: IMG, “Imagination”, “the Group”) a leading multimedia, processor and communications technology company, has been notified by Apple Inc. (“Apple”), its largest customer, that Apple is of a view that it will no longer use the Group’s intellectual property in its new products in 15 months to two years time, and as such will not be eligible for royalty payments under the current license and royalty agreement.
Apple has used Imagination’s technology and intellectual property for many years. It has formed the basis of Graphics Processor Units (“GPUs”) in Apple’s phones, tablets, iPods, TVs and watches. Apple has asserted that it has been working on a separate, independent graphics design in order to control its products and will be reducing its future reliance on Imagination’s technology.
Dass Apple einen eigenen Grafikprozessor für iPhones und iPads entwickelt, zeichnete sich schon länger ab. Mit der heute veröffentlichten Pressemitteilung von Imagination Technologies haben wir jedoch erstmals einen groben Zeitrahmen (Herbst 2018), wann wir einen Chip für die Herausforderungen „machine learning, AR und computational photography“ zu sehen bekommen.
