The demand for graphics cards has gotten so ridiculous that criminals are now raiding delivery trucks for GPUs. As revealed by a staff member on the manufacturer’s official forum yesterday, EVGA has lost a large and expensive shipment of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards due to a truck robbery. The truck was supposed to arrive at EVGA’s Southern California distribution center with various graphics cards ranging in price from $329.99 to $1,959.99 but never got there.
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.
These graphics cards are in high demand and each has an estimated retail value starting at $329.99 up to $1959.99 MSRP.
