So, if you thought using 78x GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards to mine cryptocurrency was insane, now crypto miners are tapping the GeForce RTX 30 series gaming laptops and mining crypto with them. 20 x of these RTX 3060 gaming laptops are made $ 74,000 per year…

We all know how impossible it is to buy graphics cards these days. Some Chinese crypto miners are therefore buying NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series gaming laptops and using them to mine crypto. The Weibo blogger called TC 鱼 BTCe has shared pictures for their social media. Demonstrate the GeForce RTX 30 series gaming laptops.
In the pictures above and below you can see all new gaming laptops of the GeForce RTX 30 series with GeForce RTX 3060 graphics cards – from the Chinese OEM company Hasee.
The laptops themselves cost a little more than $ 1000 each, so the 20 GeForce RTX 3060 series gaming laptops would cost around $ 20,000. If you had cheap enough electricity it would be a great investment considering how prices for cryptocurrencies – and Ethereum in particular – are rising right now.
Our friends at TechARP figured out what a single GeForce RTX 3060 laptop with ETH mining should do on average:
- 0.000265045 ETH per hour
- 0.00636108 ETH per day
- 0.1908324 ETH per month (30 days)
- 2.3217942 ETH per year
That said, if you’ve had 20 laptops with the GeForce RTX 3060 graphics, you’ll see a huge one:
- $ 8.908 per hour
- $ 213.80 per day
- $ 6,413.87 per month (30 days)
- $78,035 per year
At this rate, you’d actually pay back the investment in the laptops ($ 20,000) within 4 months (if ETH prices stayed the same). The electricity rate in China is around 0.545 RMB, or around 0.084 USD per kWh. Each laptop should use around 250W of electricity on average, which is an additional $ 3,679 per year.
With that in mind, the 20 x GeForce RTX 3060 gaming laptops are making $ 6400 per month and $ 74,000 per year. Pretty incredible!
