The truck was filled with EVGA GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards including GeForce RTX 3060 through to the GeForce RTX 3090, with MSRPs of those cards ranging between $329 and $1960. We're talking about a gigantic amount of the most sought-after graphics cards -- an entire truckload of them -- out in the wild.

EVGA was quick to action, so if you purchase a stolen EVGA GeForce RTX 30 series graphics card you will want to ask for proof of purchase and a receipt -- because if you purchase that card and register for warranty, it won't happen. EVGA will also then investigate that, and want to know how you came to own a stolen graphics card.

EVGA explains on their website:

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.
