The decision follows a complaint filed last month in the ITC by NVIDIA. NVIDIA has also filed a lawsuit in the Delaware District Court seeking damages for infringement.
The products at issue include the Galaxy Note Edge, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S4 mobile phones; and the Galaxy Tab S, Galaxy Note Pro and Galaxy Tab 2 computer tablets. Most of these devices incorporate Qualcomm mobile processors -- including the Snapdragon S4, 400, 600, 800, 801 and 805. Others are powered by Samsung's own Exynos mobile processors.
"We are pleased with the ITC decision today to open an investigation and look forward to presenting our case on how NVIDIA GPU patents are being used without a license," said David Shannon, executive vice president and chief administrative officer.
