Truck Carrying NVIDIA RTX 30 Series Graphics Cards Robbed

Published

on

Amid the supply chain delays, global microchip shortages and increased interest in cryptocurrency mining, demand for graphics cards has skyrocketed, with secondary market prices rising. Unfortunately, in light of this, some have resorted to crime, and now a truckload of NVIDIA graphics cards has been stolen.

The news broke on EVGA’s own forum, where product manager Jacob Freeman revealed that at the end of October, a shipment of its GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards had been stolen during a truck delivery run from San Francisco to the company’s Southern California distribution center.

While no specific number has been provided as to how many GPUs were actually stolen, Freeman did point out that due to increased demand for the cards, each of them had an estimated retail value of anywhere between $330 to $1,960.

He also emphasized that under state and Federal law, it’s both a criminal and civil offense to buy, receive, conceal, sell, and withhold any of the stolen items and that EVGA will not honor any product registration and warranty or upgrade claims for them.

The company is also hoping anyone with information regarding the robbery or stolen items would contact them at stopRTX30theft@evga.com.
