Re: Collateral cost is >1000 USD more than in stock MSRP?
What Cool_GTX stated. The cost is 2x MSRP, not discounted price, for cross ship. There was a LOT of abuse where folks would schedule a cross ship RMA, and then just sell the original card for more than MSRP.
Standard RMA is still an option and doesn’t require a hold, but it does leave you without a GPU for a few days.
