Hope the money gets in your hands quickly all!

If anything like the Dram thing I got $20 for, it will take a year or 2 after its been settled for the law firms to collect the names/info of those affected and get everything straightened out. Then submit to nvidia/courts to get it approved and paid IIRC. It's never a short turn around for these types of things.

Yea, my DRAM check took a year and a half or so and was in USD, which I got charged like $5 by the bank for cashing into CAD funds... Even when the corps lose, they still know how to troll lol

yes because I have an nvidia Shield TV. bought it a few months ago waiting for the gtx 1080. I knew something was wrong with it? yes and I regretted my purchase 2 weeks in. I actually bought an r9 Fury right after that to return the gtx 970 and yes I have a picture right here.


and I don't know if it was a defective card or what but the r9 Fury just refused to work properly on my system. I don't know if it's just amd drivers acting up I'll never know.

AMD isn't really helping tbh (at least for me)

I bought 7 for a GPU Render farm. :o Which ultimately was a bust due to this Slow memory fiasco.

What Nvidia did was wrong. If you fit the above you're no better than them. The right thing to do was to not enable such behaviour, simply not buying the GTX 970 would have made it clear.

I completely agree.

And knowing nVidia, they would very likely stipulate a very specific purchasing period that would be eligible for this claim.

I bought my first 970 not knowing about it (right at release). I later sold that card and went and got a more expensive 970 (Gigabyte G1) with full knowledge of the issue, a few months later I added a second 970 G1. I wouldn't claim the $30 from the lawsuit but I doubt I would claim any money from any class action lawsuit.

I thoroughly enjoyed my GTX 970's and feel like I got every penny's (a little over 80,000 of them) worth out of them.
