AMD is accusing its former employee, Robert Feldstein, of leaking its trade secrets to Nvidia.
Before joining Nvidia in July 2012, Feldstein helped in securing deals between his former employer, AMD, and console makers to produce Xbox 360, Wii U and next gen Sony and Microsoft hardware.
In addition to Feldstein, AMD is also accusing Manoo Desai and Nicolas Kociuk of conspiring “with each other to misappropriate AMD's confidential, proprietary, and/or trade secret information; and/or to intentionally access AMD's protected computers, without authorisation and/or in a way that exceeded their authorised access."
Additionally, AMD is accusing the trio of trying to lure other AMD employees to Nvidia.
The case is still in court and neither Nvidia nor the accused employees have responded yet. We’ll keep you posted.
