At the website Tom’s Hardware it’s reported that 40 containers of RTX 3090 GPUs were stolen from an MSI factory, located in China.
All the units of RTX 3090 cost roughly around $336,500 and estimated at 200. These hard-to-find units of RTX 3090 even though the release price set as 1,500$, we can see them being sold for over 2,000$ on auction sites due to a shortage of stock.
MSI has stated that this case could be an inside job after taking into consideration that the shipping area of factory is under video surveillance, and every truck coming inside or going inside is being inspected. The police has been notified by MSI.
