Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is investigating potential claims of deceptive and misleading marketing by computer chip manufacturer Nvidia. The GeForce MX 150 GPU is a low-budget mobile GPU that Nvidia claims can offer up to three times the performance per watt over its predecessor. There are, however, two variants of the GeForce MX 150 GPU, the weaker version of which can be 20 to 25 percent slower than its identically named counterpart—and which offers the same performance as the model it replaces. The weaker chipset bears the ID “10DE 1D12” and might also go by “N17S-LG-A1,” but neither of these identifiers is mentioned in marketing materials or packaging of 13-inch notebooks, where most of these chips have been found. Since the specification sheet does not usually say more than Nvidia GeForce MX 150, consumers may unknowingly be purchasing a computer with significantly lower performance than they otherwise wanted.
