China’s cryptomining ban probably won’t help you get a new GPU


China has expanded its crackdown on cryptocurrencies after several months of closing down mining operations in the country, now going a step further and deeming all crypto-related activities illegal, as reported by the Financial Times.

While this is clearly bad news for people trying to trade using digital currency within the country, PC gamers and builders might see this as the light at the end of the tunnel for the ongoing graphics card shortage. GPUs were snapped up en masse after the release of the Nvidia Ampere and AMD RDNA2 series to be used in Ethereum mining farms, causing frustration from the gaming community.
