Following a preliminary agreement in late July, NVIDIA has now set up a web portal for GTX 970 owners to claim their piece of a settlement brokered over a recent class action lawsuit.

As you may recall, the suit in question alleged that NVIDIA made false claims about the GTX 970's hardware specifications by stating that the card carried 4GB of RAM when it actually came in at 3.5GB. NVIDIA eventually reached a settlement without admitting any wrongdoing, agreeing to pay a partial refund of $30 to those eligible for a claim.

In any case, if you purchased your GTX 970 in the U.S. between September 1, 2014 and August 24, 2016, you can head to NVIDIA's dedicated claim portal to fill out a form and file your claim either online or through the mail. Do be aware that you will be required to provide a valid proof of purchase in order to file your claim as well.
