I've been trying to decode the serial number found on EVGA branded video cards. Some things I figured out on my own, some things EVGA reps told me, others remain a mystery for me. Let's take a few SN's (Don't worry, they're already "out there" on the internet, and cards I personally have, or had in the past). Lets take a few EVGA 1070 8GB SC cards...
 
SERIAL NUMBERS REMOVED BY ADMIN
 
See any patterns?
 
Digits 1-2 is the year of (re)manufacturing.
Digit 3 seems to remain constant and is always a 1, would like some clarification.
Digit 4-5, I'm not sure. Would like some clarification. Maybe the plant it was originally manufactured in?
Digit 6, also seems to remain constant and is always a 3, also would like clarification.
Digits 7-10 is the model number of the product. For these, it's 08G-P4-6173-K? (-KR is generic retail, -KB is Best Buy)
Digit 11 I'm not entirely clear on either. 0 and 8 seem to be retail parts. 9 is a refurbished model that came from an RMA. Though rarely a retail boxed unit is sent out for RMA instead and has a 0 or 8 too. 
Digits 12-16 are the unique identifier for that card.
 
If anyone else has some more info, I'm all ears! If some of my assumed info is wrong, please, do correct me.

The only reason this would at all interest me is if I had a bunch of statistics about failures and could correlate
when and where the card was assembled....otherwise, as long as my card works? I don't really care.

  • First two digits:                                   Year Manufactured
  • Third digit:                                          Product type (1 being graphics card).

I removed the serial numbers because that can cause issues for us. Sajin is pretty much correct in how the serial numbers breakdown.

Pretty close, but not 100%.  Different product lines have their own wrinkles, and RMA products have a slightly different sequence, as well.

Also If you add all of the numbers together, multiply it by the number of years for warranty, then add the year of release, minus the weight of the product you get the number 3.....
