NVIDIA hit by class action lawsuit over GTX 970 controversy

Less than a month after the GeForce GTX 970 specification controversy hit the web, NVIDIA is hit by a class-action lawsuit as some people are deeply dissatisfied by the way NVIDIA handled the incident, claiming the company is guilty of misleading advertising, unfair business practices, unlawful business practices, and deceptive business practices.

After reports about irregularities with the memory performance of its GeForce GTX 970 GPU, NVIDIA admitted in January that the GTX 970 has fower ROPs than previously communicated and acknowledged that 0.5GB of the card's 4GB GDDR5 memory has a significantly lower throughput due to the way the chip is designed.
Andrew Ostrowski, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, this week filled a class-action suit against Nvidia in the U.S. district court for the northern district of California. The complaint accuses Nvidia and Gigabyte Technology of misleading advertising, unfair business practices, unlawful business practices, and deceptive business practices. The lawsuit seeks a jury trial as well as disgorgement, restitution, injunctive relief and all the other damages and reliefs permitted under California law.

“The defendants engaged in a scheme to mislead consumers nationwide about the characteristics, qualities and benefits of the GTX 970 by stating that the GTX 970 provides a true 4GB of VRAM, 64 ROPs, and 2048 KB of L2 cache capacity, when in fact it does not,” the lawsuit states. “Defendants’ marketing of the GTX 970 was intended to and did create the perception among purchasers that the product was, in fact, able to conform with the specifications as advertised.”
