Tons Of RTX 3090s Were Stolen

Tons Of RTX 3090s Were Just Stolen

The Main Point

Tons of RTX 3090s were stolen from an MSI factory in China. This happened yesterday morning, when over $300,000 worth of RTX 3090s were stolen from an MSI factory in China. The culprits have not yet been caught, and some think that it may have been an inside job.

A ton of RTX 3090s were stolen yesterday morning. At an MSI factory in China, some unknown people stole tons of RTX 3090s. This is bad news for anyone that was hoping to get a 3090 soon. These cards are already rare enough, so a bunch of them getting stolen just makes things worse. And not only that, but as the culprits have not yet been found, some people think that it may be an inside job. With all of the 3090s already being out of stock, it may now take even longer for MSI cards to come back in stock.

How many were stolen?

You now know that some MSI 3090s were stolen, but exactly how many did they steal? Well, it was a lot. In total, there were over 40 cargo boxes of RTX 3090s stolen. This means that over 200 3090s were stolen. That is a ton. Normally that would be a lot, but it is even more in this case. The 3090 is very hard to find, so over 200 being stolen is a lot. In total, these cards are worth about $336,500. That is a ton of money. With the price of these cards being about $1,500, though, that seems about right. I don’t know how they managed to steal all of these cards, as it seems like something from a movie or video game. But, they somehow managed it in real life.

How did they do it?

How were the thieves possibly able to get away with something like this? Well, nobody really knows how they got away with this, yet. I haven’t heard of many robberies/heists like this in my life, except in movies and video games. Some think that it may have been an inside job, which makes sense. The shipping area at MSI’s factory is under video surveillance. They also inspect each truck that comes in and out of the factory. So, the only way that seems possible for this to have worked is if there was someone working at the factory that was involved. In order to find the missing cards, as well as find the culprits, MSI is offering a $15,314 reward for any information on the cards. They will even let someone that was involved in the crime off the hook, as long as they help find the cards.
