Ya it is unfortunate. Overall the 2.65% fee will only increase the price of the GTX 480 by about $12, but that is only for the next 60 days.

I am not 100% sure, but after that time, if the US President does not repeal the ruling, or it is not successfully appealed, NVIDIA will have no choice to but to agree to settlement terms with Rambus or face being unable to completely import or sell their products.

Seeing as how Rambus recently settled with Samsung over a similar matter for $900 MILLION dollars, you can imagine what kind of result such an enormous settlement would have on price
