Thieves Stole Nvidia GPUs Off A Truck In California

Video card man­u­fac­tur­er EVGA offi­cial­ly con­firmed one of its trucks, which was car­ry­ing RTX 30 cards, was recent­ly stolen en route. The truck in ques­tion was head­ing from San Fran­cis­co to a south­ern Cal­i­for­nia dis­tri­b­u­tion cen­ter when it was intercepted.

Post­ing on its forums, EVGA said the heist took place on Octo­ber 29th. The thieves were suc­cess­ful in stop­ing the truck and made off with an unspec­i­fied amount of GeForce RTX 30-Series cards.

The­ses cards have been in high demand for months, and EVGA is obvi­ous­ly aware of this. Each of these cards are val­ued between $330 and $2000. While it’s unclear how many units were on the truck, it can assumed it was rather large take. Spe­cif­ic details regard­ing how the heist went down were not giv­en, like­ly to dis­cour­age oth­ers from attempt­ing the same robbery.

EVGA remind­ed every­one that this it is a crime under US fed­er­al law to buy or receive stole prop­er­ty, includ­ing any of these cards. Because of this, EVGA is ask­ing peo­ple to check the ser­i­al num­ber of any new EVGA cards they might come into own­er­ship of against EVGA’s My Prod­ucts page. If the card can be reg­is­tered, then it was­n’t stolen. Any­one with infor­ma­tion on the stolen cards should share it at stopRTX30theft@evga.com.

The ongo­ing semi­con­duc­tor short­age has seen mas­sive after­mar­ket markups on these sought after GPUs, which is unlike­ly to change any­time soon. A spokesper­son for EVGA declined to com­ment when approached by IGN, due to the active investigation.
