Hong Kong’s Customs and Excise Department has seized a massive batch of NVIDIA’s new mining-focused GPUs, the Cryptocurrency Mining Processor series. According to MyDriver’s brief report, there were a total of 300 units being smuggled, all of which appear to be CMP 30HX models. Hong Kong authorities haven’t confirmed why the cards were seized, but China’s eagerness to ban cryptocurrency mining presumably has something to do with it.

The CMP series is a dedicated mining card launched by NVIDIA in February this year for the mining market, including four different models of 30HX, 40HX, 50HX, and 90HX. Authorized dealers include ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI, Tongde, and Bonn. Two low-end models will be listed at the end of this quarter, and two high-end models will follow up next quarter.
