"This lawsuit claimed that Defendants sold GeForce GTX 970 graphics processing units to consumers based on inaccurate or misleading information regarding the GTX 970's specifications, performance, and capabilities. Defendants deny that they did anything wrong."
That's usually how this works. It's Hush Money.

I'll get to it on Monday, cuz I'm busy this weekend.

UK residents can file for a class action under the Consumer Rights Act 2015. Someone would just have to start one.

One is being done against Mastercard as we speak. If it's successful then all UK residents over the age of 18 stand to receive a payment of around £300. Whether you have had a Mastercard or not.

Thanks, filed for two cards! I want my $60 damnit. Also, will likely be the last time I'll ever SLI. High bandwidth SLI bridges solves some of the issues, but still lack of SLI support when brand new games come out sucks.

I took a screenshot of my shipping email and also gave the device ID out of my NVidia control panel. Just to be sure that they wouldn't find issue with one or the other.

So when should I expect this money, sometime next year? :p

I remember when nVidia fried my GPU via some driver updates in 2013 which tried to force enable some feature my specific card did not support. There ought to have been a lawsuit over that.

Newegg sent me a notice like a month ago being aware of the class action lawsuit for nvidia. They told me they will send a follow up email for the claims. So should I wait for newegg to send me a follow up email or should I poke at customer service about it?

When the reports about the VRAM first came out, I jumped on Amazon chat and asked them to give me a few bob back. Ended up getting a £50 partial refund and I was happy with my 970 anyway.

Submitted a claim. I usually don't get involved in these things but it is pretty screwed up that they lied about the memory in it. I probably wouldn't have bought it if I knew that prior.
