    Intel Pentium 4 Settlement: You may be eligible for $15


    A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit alleging that Intel manipulated the performance benchmark scores for its first-generation Pentium 4 processors and that HP aided and abetted Intel’s allegedly unlawful conduct. Intel and HP deny any liability and all claims of misconduct and Intel contends that the performance benchmarks challenged by Plaintiffs fairly measured the performance of the Pentium 4 processor.

    The class in this lawsuit consists of:

    All residents of the United States, other than those residing in Illinois, who (i) purchased a new computer equipped with a Pentium 4 processor, (ii) purchased the computer between November 20, 2000 and December 31, 2001, and (iii) purchased the computer for personal, family, or household use;

    and

    All residents of the United States, other than those residing in Illinois, who (i) purchased a new computer equipped with a first-generation (Willamette) Pentium 4 processor or a Pentium 4 processor at speeds below 2.0 GHz, (ii) purchased the computer between January 1, 2002 and June 30, 2002, and (iii) purchased the computer for personal, family, or household use.

    Excluded from the Class are Intel’s current and former directors and officers; Intel’s current employees and its employees during the Class Period; Intel’s legal representatives; and any Judge to whom the litigation is assigned and the members of his or her immediate family.

    For more information, you may read the Long Form Notice and other documents available on this website.

    The Court is currently scheduled to hold a Fairness Hearing at 9:00 a.m. on January 23, 2015, in Department 1 of the Santa Clara County Superior Court located at 191 N. First Street, 2nd Floor, San Jose, California 95113. If it changes, this settlement website will be updated with the new date, time, and/or location.

    Hi there

    although I don't reside in the USA I'm surprised that the exclusion applies to Illinois. What have the poor residents of say Chicago done to deserve exclusion or is HP getting its own back after all these years for Prohibition in the 1920's !!!!!.

    Cheers

    Manipulated in what way? Seems like that's easy to do with benchmarks regardless.

    It was easy to see even than, I remember AMD and even Cyrix CPUs being faster than Intel counterparts and that could be seen even without benchmarks that were crude by today's standards.
