Intel will be giving $15 dollars to those who felt the chipmaker and HP misrepresented their CPUs released back in 2000, The Register reports.

Intel allegedly misrepresented the performance of their Pentium 4 CPUs, after the company faced competition from other CPUs from the likes of AMD.

HP is also said to have assisted Intel by agreeing with the company's version of events.

The $15 dollar payment is the result of a class action, which has not been resolved until now.

The payment will be given to customers who bought a new PC packing a Pentium 4 between November 20th 2000 and December 31st 2001, for personal, family or household use.

However, US customers residing in Illinois will not be eligible for the payment.

Intel and HP have still never admitted any liability and believe that the benchmarks challenged by Plaintiffs ‘fairly measured the performance of the Pentium 4 processor’.

It’s taken over 13 years to resolve the settlement and now customers can enjoy spending their $15 compensation.
