The lawsuit claims that AMD 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 (1) while residing in California or (2) after visiting the AMD.com website.
Excluded from the Settlement Class are (1) any Judge or Magistrate presiding over this action and members of their families, (2) the defendant, defendant’s subsidiaries, parent companies, successors, predecessors, and any entity in which the defendant or its parents have a controlling interest and their current or former officers, directors, and employees, (3) persons who properly execute and file a timely request for exclusion from the class, and (4) the legal representatives, successors or assigns of any such excluded persons.
The following AMD CPUs either (1) while residing in California or (2) after visiting the AMD.com website:
How Much Do I Get?
Defendant has created a Settlement Fund totaling $12,100,000.00. Class Member payments, as well as the cost to administer the Settlement, the cost to inform people about the Settlement, attorneys’ fees and an award to the Class Representatives will also come out of this fund.
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.
The amount of this payment will depend on how many of the Class Members file valid claims. 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.
AMD Settlement Distributions will be paid on a per-CPU basis, with 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. This website will periodically be updated to provide the estimated payment amount based on the number of participating Settlement Class Members.
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.
