Over $300,000 worth of RTX 3090s were stolen out of a factory in China

I’m fairly certain that ‘massive RTX 3090 heist’ was not on your 2020 Bingo card. Our friends at Tom’s Hardware originally reported that 40 cargo boxes containing RTX 3090s were stolen this morning from an MSI factory in China in what sounds like a GTA Online-esque heist.

The stolen goods (which are valued at around $336,500) consist of roughly over 200 hard-to-find RTX 3090 graphics cards. For context, the MSRP for the RTX 3090 is around $1,500 but due to the low stock and high demand, we’ve seen them being sold for well over $2,000 on various auction sites.
