EVGA shared the disappointing news in November 2021 about how it had lost an expensive shipment of GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards following the robbery of one its trucks that was destined for one of its South California distribution centers.

Now, just over two months later, enthusiasts on social media have seemingly uncovered where those precious GPUs have ended up, and it’s nowhere close to where one might expect. According to a post on Facebook, EVGA’s GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards made it all the way to a Vietnamese retailer called NCPC, quite a long way from their starting position in California.

“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,” Jacob Freeman, EVGA’s product management director, confirmed in a post shared on the official EVGA forum in November.

“These graphics cards are in high demand and each has an estimated retail value starting at $329.99 up to $1959.99 MSRP,” he noted.

NCPC’s owners have assured its customers that they had no idea that the EVGA GPUs that they were selling were stolen. The stolen products appear to include EVGA’s XC3 Ultra Hydro Copper series, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti model of which costs nearly $1,500.
