Nvidia GTX 970 Class Action Settlement
First up, Nvidia GTX 970 owners who purchased their GPU in the U.S. within the last two years could benefit from a class action settlement against the graphics card manufacturer. The company agreed to pay $30 for each GTX 970 purchased between September 1, 2014, and August 24, 2016.
The settlement is the result of allegations that Nvidia falsely advertised the storage capabilities and operating performance. Specifically, the allegations claim that instead of 4 GB random access memory, the GTX 970 operated on 3.5 GB with a separate .5 GB; and contained 64 render output processors (ROPs), instead of 56 ROPs, which was advertised.
Initial Class Action Lawsuit claim submission opened on September 11, 2016 and close on November 30, 2016.
