EVGA cards have been stolen
Those waiting for EVGA GeForce RTX 30 graphics cards might need to wait a bit longer.
EVGA Product Manager Jacob Freeman confirmed on the company’s forums that a truck that was moving GeForce RTX 30 graphics cards to EVGA’s distribution center in California has been stolen. The truck was loaded with graphics cards valued between $329.99 up to $1959.99 MSRP, which likely means anything from GeForce RTX 3060 up to 3090 models.
EVGA is aware of which cards were stolen, so registering them for warranty claims will not be possible. Furthermore, it may lead to EVGA investigating how the card was obtained and force buyers of stolen goods to be returned to EVGA.
If you are not sure if the graphics cards being sold on craigslist are from a legal source, ask the seller for proof of purchase or even ask them for a serial code to verify it was not from the stolen truck.
