GPU crime occurred, but this time before they were able to mine any cryptocurrency. Well, anyway. Just a few days ago, a truck of video cards was stolen in California.
In an article about EVGA Forum (pass through Graphics card) Product manager Jacob Freeman (Jacob Freeman) confirmed that a batch of EVGA GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards were dug from a truck on the way from San Francisco to Southern California.
He also said that the retail price of onboard cards ranges from $329.99 to $1959.99, so there are almost certainly some Nvidia RTX 3090s, but there are also some Nvidia RTX 3060s.
The post carefully warned people not to buy any cards that surfaced because EVGA listed the serial numbers involved. Therefore, trying to register a warranty for any of these cards will not work and may allow you to get access by the authorities. If you can register for the card warranty, this clearly shows that your GPU is clean. It is now better than ever to check the serial number before purchasing Craigslist.

Of course, in the current climate, the United States is not the only place where there is a shortage of graphics cards. Due to the shortage of chips, people all over the world are struggling to obtain new GPUs. Because of this demand, some GPUs are sold for about twice the price in places such as Germany and Austria.
But there are new graphics cards to wait anyway. According to reports, Nvidia will announce RAM upgrades for many of its cards next month, the potential specifications of Intel Arc Alchemist look pretty good, and AMD’s next-generation flagship design is being finalized. Maybe wait for these before deciding to pull any of your own trucks to rob.
