Email from Newegg today. I got a 960 some months back when the EVGA SSC 4G version with back plate was $159. Today I got this. This can't be part of the 970 3.5G issue? Anyone know what this is about?

We have been informed about a class action lawsuit settlement with NVIDIA regarding the GTX 960 graphics card. Newegg is currently awaiting details about the settlement claims process (instructions, website). Once we have this important information, we will send you a follow-up email with the specifics on how you can submit your claim.

If you have any questions regarding the information provided in this email, please don't hesitate to contact Newegg Customer Service through one of the convenient contact methods provided here.

Sincerely,
Your Newegg Customer Support Team

I got an email identical except claiming it was part of a GTX 980 settlement. I think someone at Newegg screwed up the mass emails.

It isn't the 3.5 GB issue, that is unique to the 970.

I got one of these today too, but for the 980ti.

Either it's a scam (spoofing Newegg as the sender) or it's some other suit, or newegg messed up and is sending the 970 notice to all 900-series buyers by mistake.

Funny thing is I didn't buy a 980 from Newegg, or anywhere for that matter. I have bought multiple 980ti's and other 9 series cards, but never a 980.

Would be funny if they did the actual payouts, also would be interesting to see how Nvidia, AIB partners take responsibility with retailers (like Amazon) having to shell out $ from their pocket to retain existing & potential customers.

In addition to the email for the GTX 970 I bought from them I just got one for an R9 290 I also got from them. Something's definitely haywire.
