AMD has reached a settlement over a lawsuit that claimed it misrepresented the number of cores in certain of its CPUs and that AMD is liable for violations of California’s Unfair Competition Law and California’s False Advertising Law, as well as other laws.
AMD denies all claims and that it violated any law. The Court has not decided whether the Plaintiffs or the Defendant should win this case. Instead we have this AMD settlement. That way, they avoid the uncertainties and expenses associated with ongoing litigation, and Class Members will get compensation now rather than years from now, if at all.
You are part of the settlement class if you purchased one or more AMD CPUs either:
- while residing in California OR
- after visiting the AMD.com website
So even if you are not in California, but went through their website, you still qualify.
The following AMD CPUs are included in this settlement:
First, if you are a Class Member and you want to receive payment, you must complete and submit a valid Claim Form by January 3, 2020.
Defendant has created a Settlement Fund totaling $12,100,000.00. Class Member payments, as well as the cost to administer the Settlement.
Due to high class member participation and the volume of CPU purchases claimed in this settlement, the pro-rata payout per chip purchased is now approximately $40.00 per CPU. Each Class Member who files a valid claim will receive a proportionate share of the Settlement Fund based on the number of CPUs purchased, up to $300 per CPU purchased.
There’s a maximum of five (5) qualifying purchases paid per Claimant, without proof of purchase. Claimants who purchased more than five (5) CPUs must provide proof of purchase upon request.
