Does any1 know the current progress of this?, last i checked, i saw that all owners would be able to claim 30 dollars as compensation, but i haven't been able to find anywhere to actually claim it

The notification won't be until the 23rd of October or around that time from what I'm finding, then you'll have to get your refund in before the end of December to get it.

How exactly are they planning on notifying every single buyer tho?

Was there a seperate lawsuit filed for non-US residents?

"Under the terms of the settlement, Class Members include all U.S. residents who bought a GTX 970 GPU from the defendants, the AIC Partners or their authorized retailers between Sept. 1, 2014 and Aug. 24, 2016 other than for purposes of resale."

like seriously?, i didn't really pay much attention to the lawsuit i admit, but why would it only be for americans , i paid the same money for my card, which is, like everyone elses, with 3.5 Vram

i guess this just shows how idiotic the american justice system is

Easy now Big Fella. I dunno...it's a US court. Coupla stray thoughts though. It's a settlement not a judgement. I did read NewEgg and Amazon refunded an amount to folks that bought thru them. Have you tried asking your provider if they might be doing the same? Or, if not, would they as a gesture for their loyal customers?

You folks are still in the EU, correct? I saw someone say "most EU courts can approve a US verdict and even reevaluate a dollar amount." NVidia didn't put a limit on the amount.

Or, you could try asking NV directly. Tell them you're asking for the $30 bux in lieu of filing another class action for Non US Residents?

Again, since it's a settlement not a judgement, maybe asking them to also pay you the $30 bux is in keeping with their intended spirit of settling in the first place.

They actually agreed to pay $43.75 per unit but attorneys get theirs. From what I read it was something around $1.3 million.

Hell, write some emails. Make a couple of calls. It's something to do, aye?

Since it's a US Court it's likely US Only. Unless the suit was... United States Et All, then anyone else outside the US can join.

Well, technically, you were supposed to register your product after buying to receive support for it. It's rather easy for them to send an automated mail to all registered users for a certain product. If you choose not to do that however (like probably most people), that is a personal choice, but I assume to burden of contact lies with you.

The settlement also reads it applies for US citizens only by the way. But the option expires on 30 November apparently. I have no idea how this would work for non US citizens, like others have said, ask Nvidia or a specialist in this area...
