    law enforcement attorney, you may need them someday whether for your rights or others, do not generalize, that's not accurate

    Actually "an NVIDIA" is correct grammar. It's about the sound the word makes, not if it actually starts with a vowel. Nvidia themselves say "an NVIDIA" - see http://www.nvidia.com/object/physx_faq.html

    Your going to heck using the Lords name in vain. That more than makes up for 20 bucks in 5 to 10 years.

    This is oh so wrong. There has to be an injured party.
    We are buying image rendering device from Nvidia, not academic paper nor technical information.
    Hence nothing BUT performance matters.


    OK lets see how $15 actionable false advertising looks like:

    “Intel used its enormous resources and influence in the computing industry to, in Intel’s own words, ‘falsely improve’ the Pentium 4’s performance scores,” the suit alleges. “It secretly wrote benchmark tests that would give the Pentium 4 higher scores, then released and marketed these ‘new’ benchmarks to performance reviewers as ‘independent third-party’ benchmarks. It paid software companies to make covert programming changes to inflate the Pentium 4’s performance scores and even disabled features on the Pentium III so that the Pentium 4’s scores would look better by comparison.”

    At least provide some free AAA Games or something for this! I do have 2 GTX 970s in SLI so I want to get everything out of my money I paid for.

    I am thinking that they should use some kind of hardware authentication mechanism to verify claimants 970 ownership, and then send the game code to verified 970 owner

    I recommended that in the thread with the nvidia rep in it, Last time I will do that ever again. The crying was relentless.

    IKR, it's not even hard. It has a vowel sound so "an" is correct. FAIL.

    Where did you go to school at?

    It is an Nvidia Geforce Gtx 970

    Its a GtX 970. So you get a F and need to go back to school.

    The right thing that Nividia needs to do is off everyone who took part in this lawsuit give a free upgrade to any future Nvidia card of their choice. I know that this will never happen but it should be done.

    I saw this Google Adsense ad last night and posted it to several forums. Guru3d was the only one to pick it up as a news story. Hilbert/Guru3d truly are consumer first. I appreciate that very much. Gamespot deserves kudos as well.

    Me, personally? Not at all. My card was bought for it's GPGPU performance. Had that not been confirmed by another member here, I wouldn't have bought the card. This card for gaming is, on average, only 5-10% faster than the GTX660SLI it replaced. However, it's up to 4x the combined GPGPU performance of those GTX660's.

    Would I claim it? No. From my standpoint, that would be dishonest. None of the "revelations" have any effect on my use of the card, or it's level of performance.

    I didn't claim the "award" against ATI, Seagate nor Netflix either. Of course, the "award" against Netflix was laughable at best. An estimated $0.24 "award"..... I'd be embarrassed to even take THAT check to the bank.... The lawyers were the only ones that "won" in the Netflix case. The members of the "class" were harmed by Netflix and insulted by the "award"....

    Instead of a petty financial award, I'd prefer NVidia be forced to put measures in place to guarantee that such "incident" never happens again and a set of "punishments" be established in case it does.

    This is an attempt at a second class-action suit involving NVidia, in regards to falsified specifications. The previous was falsified TDP data for G84m and G86m. At this point, I think it's safe to assume that NVidia can not be completely trusted.

    LOL you use AN when next to a vowel, not consonant... I guess English is not your first language?

    An Nissan?
    An Night gown?
    An Nail brush?
    An Nail?
    An Nividia?
