EVGA Product Manager Jacob Freeman confirmed on company forums that the criminals had hijacked a truck carrying goods to an EVGA distribution center in California. The load was hundreds of GeForce RTX 30 series video cards.
The clerk quotes the cost of a unit from $ 330 to $ 1959, which could probably mean a full range of models: from GeForce RTX 3060 to GeForce RTX 3090 or even professional Nvidia RTX and Quadro. Also, taking into account the shortfall, the total cost of the cargo is probably a round sum.
EVGA knows the serial numbers of stolen graphics cards, so it will not be possible to register them for a warranty or service claim. Additionally, EVGA will investigate the origin of the pop-up cards and force buyers of stolen goods to return them.
The Company recalls that it is a criminal and civil offense to “buy or obtain” stolen property under state and federal law. It is also a crime to “hide, sell, possess or help conceal” any such property.
To assist in the investigation of this case, the company provided a special email address [email protected], where they request to transfer any information.
