A California man is suing technology company Nvidia Corporation over claims that the capacity of its graphics processing units are misleading.
Jorell Dye, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class action complaint July 24 in the San Jose Division of the Northern District of California U.S. District Court against Nvidia Corporation, alleging false advertising and unfair, deceptive and unlawful business practices.
Dye purchased an Nvidia product containing a GTX 970 graphics card because he wanted the high quality that the GTX 970 allegedly provided.
The complaint alleges that the GTX 970's performance specifications are lower in several categories than were represented and advertised.
As a result, Dye and others in the class paid premium prices for a product that should have been priced lower and have suffered injury of fact and financial loss, according to the complaint.
Dye and other class members seek restitution and court costs. He is represented by Robert C. Schubert, Noam M. Schubert and Kathryn Y. Schubert of Schubert, Jonckheer & Kolbe LLP in San Francisco.
