Laptop Mining Episode 2

Laptop Mining Episode 2

We laughed frankly and then became enraged when we discovered that in China, some people are taking advantage of the arrival of the RTX 30 to set up mini mining farms with several laptops. We thought laptop mining was just a delusion. We should have stopped there and told ourselves that this was an isolated case, the tinkering of an unconscious madman. But no, actually.

Laptop Mining: a growing discipline…

Now that the availability of laptops with GeForce RTX 30 Mobile graphics has improved and Ethereum continues to climb, the laptop mining craze is on the rise. Launch promotions for the new lines seem to make the investment even more profitable than the cards alone! The first picture shows us a mini farm composed of more than 20 gaming laptops of the Chinese brand Hasee. We can also see another image with at least 25 other computers.

In the first case the material is simply stacked while the other miner decided to dismantle the LCD panel of each of his laptops to improve the cooling. Laptops equipped with the RTX 3070 are obviously the ones that are sought after to start mining and try to make their investment profitable as quickly as possible.

When will Nvidia (and the others) decide to stop all this?

The choice of the miners to mainly use RTX 3070 laptops means that despite a higher base price they still make a profit.

We will notice that even if we are on laptops, the ventilation of these mini-mines remains essential. Finally, for those who are wondering: yes obviously this trend is going to have repercussions on the prices of laptops…on top of everything else.
