SEOUL, Sept 5 Thu Sep 4, 2014 11:05pm EDT

SEOUL, Sept 5 (Reuters) - Samsung Electronics Co Ltd said on Friday that it will take "all measures necessary" against Nvidia Corp after the U.S. chipmaker sued the South Korean firm for patent infringement.

Nvidia said on Thursday that Qualcomm and Samsung had used Nvidia's patented technologies without a licence in Samsung's mobile devices, including the just-launched Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge.

Samsung did not specify what actions it plans to take against Nvidia, which also sued rival chipmaker Qualcomm Inc for patent infringement.
