No, half a million GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs were not lost in shipment and now found

There is a news story gaining a bit of traction claiming that 500,000 GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards had gone missing during transit, and have now been found in an unlabeled shipping container in South Korea. There is even a supposed quote from Nvidia on the matter, explaining the situation to shareholders. The only problem is, none of it actually happened.

That is a bit of a buzzkill, because suddenly finding half a million missing Ampere GPUs could help alleviate the frustration related to the lack of supply (compared to demand). It’s now been more than three months since the first consumer Ampere part released to retail, the GeForce RTX 3080, and it remains hard to find in stock by a first-party seller. Same goes for the cards that have come after it (GeForce RTX 3090, 3070, and 3060 Ti, in that order).
