Nov. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Advanced Micro Devices Inc. failed to persuade a U.S. judge to halt a patent dispute S3 Graphics Co. has against Apple Inc. at the U.S. International Trade Commission, according to a filing with the trade agency.

AMD, a maker of chips for Apple computers, sued S3 last month, claiming it owned the patents that S3 has asserted against Apple. In an Oct. 28 filing with the ITC, S3 said the federal judge denied a request for an immediate halt to the ITC case. The commission is scheduled to release its final decision on Nov. 15.

The civil suit is Advanced Micro Devices Inc. v. S3 Graphics Co., 11cv965, U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware (Wilmington).

The ITC case is In the Matter of Certain Electronic Devices with Image Processing Systems, 337-724, U.S. International Trade Commission (Washington).
