A suit was filed a while ago claiming that ATI and NVidia colluded on both the price and releases of their video cards and $1.7 million was agreed upon (with the lawyers keeping 35% as their "expenses"). If you are elgible to participate, you need to file before March 5, 2009.
Now the important details- are you elgible? They ask two questions. First, are you an employee of NVidia or AMD/ ATI? If so, you are not elgible.
Second, "Did you purchase at least one graphics processing card product online from the websites of ATI Technonogies (shopATI.com) or NVidia Corporation (www.nvidia.com) during the period from December 4, 2002 to November 7, 2007, at a time when you resided in the United States?
Sorry, this does not cover you if you bought a video card somewhere else like NewEgg. Says you could expect a check for about ten percent of your purchase price or possibly more- depending on how many people file claims. If you did buy from their websites and do not have any receipts you can rely on their paperwork to support your claim.
For more information and forms (you can file online) go to www.gpuantitrust.com or www.gpuantitrustsettlement.com . I received this in the mail today because a few years ago I bought an ATI video card from the clearance section of their website. I am sharing the info in case any of you purchased from them too. I felt it was better to post in under Hardware instead of Got Deals thinking more of you would catch it here.
