Nvidia gives American owners of GTX 970 may receive $ 30 back. That is the outcome of a settlement that the company has made in a class action case from disgruntled buyers after the scandal about the 3.5 / 4.0 amount of memory.
The parties settled at an amount of $ 30, according to Top Class Action who was behind the law-suit. The nukber is based on an average selling price of $ 350. It is an interim arrangement, the details of have not been disclosed. Nvidia promises to offer the amount to any American buyer who purchased the 970 and makes the claim. Nvidia also pays the legal fees for the lawsuit.
End-uers were dissatisfied that the GTX 970 did not use the amount of memory that Nvidia advertised and sold the product for. The company claimed in its introduction to a GTX 970 with 4GB GDDR5, but later had to admit that the memory was divided into a portion of 3,5GB and a slower partition of 512MB. These cards also had 56 instead of 64 rops, while the company initially advertised 56 initially. In addition, the amount of L2 cache used is 1792KB instead of 2048KB. Nvidia has always denied that there was any intent and dismissed this as communication error.
