Hynix has had its fine for infringing memory patents cut considerably following a ruling by a California judge.
Federal Judge Ronald Whyte slashed that figure to almost a third and awarded Rambus just $133.4m.
However, the judge also gave Rambus the option of a retrial if it wanted to turn down the reduced payment.
Hynix lost the original case when the jury found that it had breached 10 patents relating to Rambus' SDRAM, DDR SDRAM and DDR2 memory products.
