A group of US PC owners has filed a lawsuit against Intel, accusing the company of misleading marketing.
The suit claims that customers were misled into believing that the chip giant's Pentium 4 processor would give them better performance than a Pentium III or an AMD Athlon.
Also naming Hewlett Packard and Gateway, the suit was filed at the beginning of June and is currently awaiting a ruling to see whether it falls under state or federal jurisdiction.
The customers have alleged that it is a "material fact that there is no benefit to consumers in choosing the Pentium 4 over the Pentium III".
They added that "the Pentium 4 is less powerful and slower than the Pentium III and/or the AMD Athlon".
A spokeswoman for Intel said that the company is unable to comment on ongoing legal matters.
