3Dlabs and STB Systems have agreed to an out of court settlement of pending lawsuits between the two companies.
The terms of the settlement were not disclosed. The agreement ends a legal battle between the two companies that began in August 1998 when 3Dlabs filed a lawsuit in California charging STB with breach of contract for failure to pay 3Dlabs for chipsets purchased. STB filed a counter suit the following month alleging a number of common law and statutory claims against 3Dlabs.
“We are pleased to have reached a mutually beneficial resolution with STB and both companies are now able to move forward with our respective business plans,” said 3Dlabs CEO Osman Kent.
3Dlabs makes graphics chips focused on the high end of the market but plans to move into the mid-range of the market with future products.
