Nvidia GTX 970 owners in the US can now claim their $30 settlement

 

Nvidia GTX 970 owners in the US can now claim their $30 settlement, which comes as a result of the 2015 class-action lawsuit over the falsely advertised memory capacity of the GPU. 

This court case was started in February 2015, after it was discovered that the last 0.5GB of the GTX 970's 4GB of GDDR5 VRAM would run at up to 80% slower than it was supposed to. The GTX 970 was also found to have less Render Output Processors (ROPs) and less memory cache than was advertised by Nvidia. 

In this lawsuit, Nvidia was said to have engaged in false advertising, deceptive business practices and to have violated California's business law for unfair business practices.

Right now Nvidia GTX 970 buyers will be able to claim $30 from gtx970settlement.com, which is a website that has been created by the law firms representing the law firms in charge of this class action lawsuit. 

This class action lawsuit only applies to those who are living in the US, though similar lawsuits are currently taking place in the EU.

It just seems to me that there are more important issues in the US....like a lack of clean drinking water or access to proper healthcare...than pursuing a case of miss-advertising. Strange sense of priorities.Quote

I don't think you know how it all works... Or anything about what happens in the US. Could go on but no point in derailing here

I doubt even most people will claim the settlement. Most probably don't even know about itQuote
