If you live in the United States, purchased an Nvidia GTX 970, and are interested in getting the $30 class action refund, the deadline for claims is tomorrow (30 Nov). In order to submit a claim, you should head to this page and follow the outlined steps.
Have proof of purchase or some other identifying factor. In terms of what’s acceptable, the site says: “Alternatively, you may submit a Product Identification Number, which is the serial number, device identification number, part number, or other letters and/or digits embedded on the box, back, or bottom of each GPU that comprises its unique identification number, or that can be located by checking the settings for the GPU via software.”
Nvidia admitted no wrongdoing in settling the class action suit, which claimed that the GPU manufacturer misled customers over the VRAM capabilities of the card. While the GTX 970 technically had 4GB of VRAM (as advertised), 0.5 of that total was much slower than the other 3.5GB.
The lawsuit settlement means US owners of Nvidia GTX 970 cards can claim a $30 refund per card. This applies to all 970 cards bought between 1 September 2014 and 24 August 2016, from all third-party manufacturers.
