The Chinese manufacturer sold 1000 laptops with GeForce RTX 3060 for mining

On the Weibo platform, the BTCer user boasted a video and images that capture a large number of Hasee laptops equipped with a GeForce RTX 3060 and ready (in storage racks, in a residential house on the floor, on a table, in short, everywhere) for cryptocurrency mining. Even if we limit ourselves to a fifteen-second shot in the video, we can get an idea of ​​their number. The shot shows three rows of six shelves, 3-4 shelves in each shelf, 9 laptops in each shelf (some are not yet located and it can be seen that people in the video are unpacking other laptops to add them). In total, around 500 laptops were captured, and after adding free space, over 800 laptops can fit in the prepared shelves. It’s just about the shelves in the warehouse, which were seen in the 15-second video. Given that BTCer has also supplied images of laptops in other locations, it is clear that it has more of them available than would fit on the warehouse shelves, so it may not be far from the truth to estimate that it managed to get about 1,000 new laptops from the company. Hasee.

BTCer certainly calculates that the investment will pay off. Hasee suddenly sold a thousand laptops, she didn’t have to deal with sales, distribution, everything went to one interested party, so it was certainly advantageous for the company.

It is somewhat striking how the third party – Nvidia, as a GPU supplier, approaches the situation. In the previous wave of cryptocurrency, week after week, the company was heard trying to prevent the sale of its GPUs for mining, pushing manufacturers not to sell game hardware to miners, and looking for ways to provide hardware for gamers.

Nvidia seems to have changed its strategy and quietly approves of hardware sales to miners. Hasee would have a hard time selling a thousand laptops to a cryptobaron if she feared that Nvidia had cut her off from supplying graphics chips for such a decision. He obviously has no such fears. The change in strategy is also confirmed by autumn rumors that Nvidia has sold stocks of its own GeForce Founders Edition to miners.

In the end, it is possible that Nvidia did not change its strategy and the criticism of the sale of mining hardware during the last wave was only in appearance. Last year, Nvidia was accused of distorting revenue – according to the plaintiff in the financial report, it deliberately underestimated the revenue from the sale of mining cards by $ 1.1 billion. It is therefore possible that in the last wave Nvidia already claimed A, but did B and in the current wave she continues to do B, she just doesn’t say A and prefers to keep quiet.
