Advanced Micro Devices Inc. and Nvidia Corp., the manufacturers of chips that make computer games more realistic, said the Justice Department had closed its probe into their graphics-processor pricing and marketing practices.

The Justice Department began investigating Nvidia and AMD's ATI Technologies Inc. unit in 2006 as part of a price-fixing probe of the industry.

The decision allows AMD and Nvidia to keep challenging Intel Corp. without the risk of monetary penalties or restrictions to their marketing practices.
