According to Twitter account I_Leak_EN Reportedly, a company selling hardware in Vietnam is investing in a set of “buffalo plow” at home with special buffaloes. This “buffalo” is made up of RTX A4000s, specialized GPUs for working.
Based on the information posted by the hardware seller (now the post has been deleted), each GPU produces a hashrate of only 62-67 MH/s, which is too low when compared to a graphics card like NVIDIA GTX 3090 with can reach 500 MH/s. When the hashrate is low, the card’s “mining” speed will not be high.
However, the retailer mined Ethereum with a rig of multiple RTX A4000s, yielding a hashrate of up to 513.45 MH/s.
The cryptocurrency craze gradually cooled, but still flickered, causing “miners” to look for every possible means of mining. In the past, we’ve seen “Chinese magicians” turn PlayStation 5 into white buffalo plows. There was also someone who tried to mine cryptocurrency with … Tesla cars.
The fact that the hardware retailer mines coins with a dedicated GPU rig at work is not surprising. However, with low performance per GPU, connecting a large rig can lead to waste.
