300 NVIDIA CMP 30HX Graphics Cards Seized by Hong Kong Customs from Smugglers

Hong Kong Customs seized a fishing boat full of graphics cards on the 3rd of April. A suspicious boat was spotted in the waters next to the regional airport with a total of 300 units of the NVIDIA CMP 30HX miner-centric GPU. The customs officials were quick to seize the cargo and smugglers were arrested along with the boat owners. It’s unclear just yet which board partner the GPUs are from as there’s no label, but they appear to be dual-fan variants of the CMP 30HX.
