So, actual graphics card smugglers are now a thing then



Graphics cards are now so profitable criminal gangs are willing to risk running foul of the Hong Kong authorities simply to smuggle unlabelled GPUs. TVB News (via Tom’s Hardware) has reported that 300 Nvidia graphics cards, specifically for GPU mining, have been seized during a 2am raid just outside of Hong Kong International Airport.

I’ll admit, the actual smuggling angle initially had me confused. However much we might rail against the use of GPUs in large-scale mining operations, it’s not illegal for those outfits to buy up a block of 300 new graphics cards for the privilege.
