EVGA's truckload of RTX 30 series GPUs has surfaced in Vietnam, over two months after they were swiped in the US. An official retailer had been selling them, reputedly without knowledge that they were stolen.

A truckload of EVGA GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards have re-appeared over two months after they were robbed. In November, an EVGA Product Manager announced on the company's forums that someone had hijacked the truck during its journey from San Francisco to its Southern California distribution centre. The Product Manager's post is as follows:

Supposedly, EVGA collected the stolen graphics cards' serial numbers that it flagged in its warranty status database in case people tried to register them. Subsequently, someone attempted to register a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti purchased from NCPC Vietnam, which has since apologised. Following the apology, the company offered a full refund to those who unwittingly purchased a misappropriated graphics card. Also, the wholesaler that it purchased the graphics cards from has now recalled the shipment it sent to NCPC Vietnam.

Incidentally, NCPC Vietnam chose to offer just 1 month's warranty with the cards instead of EVGA's 1-3 year warranty. Unsurprisingly, EVGA will not honour any warranty for the cards that it has marked as stolen. You can check if your card is affected by inputting your card's serial number. If your card is unaffected, you can then register it via a separate EVGA support page.
