Nvidia Settles by the class action on the GTX 970

In 2015 it was filed a class action lawsuit for false advertising Nvidia GTX 970 on. This graph is sold as if it had 4GB of memory, but they were actually 3.5GB and 0.5GB separated, which made ​​the bandwidth when that part was used was lower.

Nvidia initially attempted to cover it up, did not admit the error. This led to almost all users of this model were united against big business. The scandal was so great that many companies began to receive these returned model. All this made sales of graphic disminuyesen greatly, especially soon after discovering the cache memory 2 was not available to that indicated in its characteristics.

Nvidia CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang and apologized and promised never again happen something similar.


Nvidia has already been announced, has promised to return 30 dollars to each user of a GTX 970. In addition to this we add the expense of the lawyers involved, it is estimated that about 1.3 million.

Lawyers also have spoken "The agreement is fair and reasonable, it is an acceptable agreement." They also commented that although the total amount has not been released publicly accepted Nvidia to pay for everything without any financial limit.

For now it is not known how this will affect users. It has not announced any date or as we will have to request such economic return. As required to prove the purchase of the product can become a problem for many users because hardly keep your receipts for so long.

At least we can say that the user has won this pulse. Hopefully this will serve as a warning to companies to advertise their products when fraudulently.
