A Full Truck of RTX Graphics Cards have been Stolen in the US

EVGA has lost a truckload of RTX graphics cards to thieves

EVGA has confirmed that a shipment of their RTX 30 series graphics cards has been stolen in the US, reporting that each stolen graphics card is worth between $329.99 and $1959.99 each. 

These graphics cards were stolen from a truck travelling from San Francisco to EVGA's Southern California distribution centre. EVGA has not commented on how many GPUs were stolen during this incident. Still, given the value of the merchandise stolen, the value of the truck's cargo is considered to be substantial. 

EVGA has asked their fans to send them any information they have to them if they know anything about the theft. On top of that, they reminded their fans that it is against both state and local laws to buy or receive stolen merchandise. EVGA has also stated that they will not register or honour the warranty or upgrade claims for any of their stolen graphics cards. 

Below is EVGA's statement on their stolen truck of graphics cards in full. 
    

    PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that on October 29, 2021, a shipment of EVGA GeForce RTX 30-Series Graphics Cards was stolen from a truck en route from San Francisco to our Southern California distribution center.

As soon as I saw that this happened I immediately thought of the movie. I'm glad that folks are enjoying the reference.

The fact that the Civics have green lights at the bottom is the icing on the cake.Quote

Sadly once again the only people being screwed are the gamers.

It's all well and good for them to declare that you get no warranty etc, but what if you bought it locally or something and had no idea it was stolen? and paid scalper prices. You're left with no warranty.

These are either off to China to mine (in which case EVGA needs to start looking a bit closer at their employees, because no one just jacks a random truck) or they need to start dealing with the matter on a case scenario basis.

Isn't this their second shipment that has just "randomly" <sarcasm> gone missing? or was that someone else?Quote

its easy... you just need some scrupulous drivers waiting with knowledge on what they are hauling. EVGA dont employ drivers, those are always external. All thats required is someone with a keen eye working in logistics to spot the shipment, then arrange for that to "disappear"Quote
