Apple is appealing a patent infringement lawsuit that had them paying $21.7 million to OPTi.
AppleInsider reports that OPTi was awarded $21.7 for Apple violating three patents that are described as "a system for predictive snooping of cache memory that helps shuttle information between a processor, its memory, and other elements of a computer."
The article goes on to mention that OPTi also has a lawsuit against processor maker AMD; they also mention that OPTi stopped manufacturing and sales back in 2003 so they could focus on lawsuits.
It will probably be a while before we hear more information in reference to Apple's appeal, but we'll keep you posted on this story as more details become available.
