Some more footage that will enrage gamers and environmentalists. VideoCardz has more pictures of laptop cryptocurrency mining farms. As it's hard to get enough supply of GeForce RTX 30 series desktop video cards, Chinese miners are now buying RTX 30 series laptops in bulk. With Ethereum trading at fresh all-time highs, miners are now deeming it profitable enough to buy large numbers of laptops.

The site writes this has been going on for weeks now, and wonders why NVIDIA isn't doing more to prevent this.
NVIDIA is known for enforcing strict rules on distributors, retailers, and even reviewers. Yet somehow it failed to prevent miners from mass buying hundreds of the same products with their own processors. The photos from the BTCer mining farm are an example of how a single notebook company (Hasee) has enabled GPU mining operation by a single entity. It is time for NVIDIA to act and it is time to act swiftly.
This just seems like an enormous waste of raw materials and electricity for the hopes of making an easy profit.
