Over $300,000 Of NVIDIA RTX 3090 Graphics Cards Have Been Stolen From a Factory In China

More than $300,000 Of NVIDIA RTX 3090 graphics cards have been stolen from a factory in China, first reported by Tom’s hardware

it’s reported that 40 cargo boxes of graphics cards were stolen from an MSI warehouse in the early hours of December 7. This isn’t only a financial blow to MSI and the sellers of the RTX 3090, but it’s also a consumer issue as the RTX 3090 is already incredibly hard to come by. $340,000-worth of those cards isn’t a small amount of stock to go missing.

According to the original report, because of the high amount of surveillance in the area, as well as the fact that MSI inspects trucks regularly, the company thinks it’s an inside job – someone who worked at the warehouse knew how to get the stock out without being noticed.

This situation is a little like the console scalping we’re seeing surrounding the PS5 and Xbox Series X at the moment.

Although it is unclear how many cards were stolen, as we just have a value of how much the boxes were worth – it’s obvious that even selling a few of these cards at a marked up price is incredibly profitable.

MSI is asking for information on the burglary with a reward of over $15,000 to individuals that can help them find the culprits and the company is working with the police to find out who stole its merchandise.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Can’t Keep 4K @60FPS on an RTX 3090 GPU

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Can’t Keep 4K @60FPS on an RTX 3090 GPU

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla launches tomorrow and the Russian folks at GameGPU were able to publish their PC performance results. So far, things aren’t looking great, at least on the high-end side, the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla can’t keep 4K @60FPS on an RTX 3090 GPU.

The first video shows Assassin’s Creed Valhalla struggling to stay above 60 frames per second at 4K and max settings on NVIDIA’s most powerful graphics card, the $1499 GeForce RTX 3090. In fact, when Eivor enters a village the frame rate drops down to around 45 FPS, which is disappointing to say the least.

The second video shows an even more struggling GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, which is still a damn good graphics card performance-wise. However, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla runs about 15 frames per second slower than the RTX 3090 on this one, which means you’re down to around 30 frames per second in certain instances.

it’s worth mentioning that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is an AMD-optimized game, which could mean NVIDIA graphics card have a harder time than usual with it. Still, considering there are no fancy features like ray tracing, it is indeed quite a bit disappointing.

Ubisoft officially said the game will run at 4K and 60 frames per second on the Xbox Series X, while the PS5 will do upscaled 4K and 60 frames per second.
