500 brand new AMD Radeon RX 5700 graphics cards meant for crypto-currency mining just burned up in a fire!
500 Radeon RX 5700 Cards Destroyed In Fire!
On 27 January 2021, Guntis Vitolins shared pictures of 500 Radeon RX 5700 graphics cards that were just destroyed in a fire.
RX 5700 Fire Started In Welding Accident!
But here is where it takes a strange twist. It was not an actual “mining accident”, as we might expect.
A welding accident apparently started the fire at this warehouse, where he was building his mining rigs.
Some 500 of his Radeon RX 5700 graphics cards – all brand new, in boxes – were destroyed in the fire, and firefighting operation.
Fortunately for him, his mining rigs survived, and just needed to dry out from the water.
Another crypto-miner estimated that the 500 destroyed Radeon RX 5700 cards would cost about US$300,000.
But you would be hard-pressed to find 500 of these cards on Amazon!
