NVIDIA Class-Action Suit

ComputerWorld reports that NVIDIA has been hit with a class-action lawsuit over defects in its GPU line, the suit alleging the company knowingly concealed information about the problem from its investors. The suit is seeking unspecified damages. Here's a bit: "Highlighting the seriousness of the charges laid against Nvidia, the lawsuit said Hewlett-Packard issued a BIOS update to mitigate the chip problem eight months before Nvidia revealed its existence to investors. Nvidia and computer makers have used BIOS updates that cause system fans to run more often in an attempt to reduce heat stress on the affected chips and prevent them from failing." Thanks Mike Martinez.

So your solution is to do nothing?

The solution is to not buy their products in the future. Here's some math, what "punishes" the company more?

$20 lost per person in a class action, or some other small amount that it typically ends up being.

$200 lost per person who goes with the competition when their next upgrade rolls around.

Lawsuits like these are a needless burden on our legal system, and only serve to make some lawyer rich. One guy gets half the settlement, the thousands of people in the class action get to split the other half. Gee, how just.

Filing a lawsuit because you are not happy with the reliability of a product is NOT appropriate. The only time there should be an exception is when someone is hurt or other serious damage is done. Someones computer becoming non-functional is not a reason to file a fuckin lawsuit.

Whenever I see shit like this it makes me ashamed to be an American. We really are a nation of whiny babies who sue at the drop of a hat.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.
