    Here's what the description of the official Weibo video for the event says:


    [Seize 5,840 illegally imported graphics cards] Recently, when Meilin Customs and Huanggang Customs conducted a joint inspection of a company's goods declared for import from Huanggang Port, it was found that 3 of the graphics card labels were covered by other labels. , it was found that the specifications and models displayed on the actual labels that were covered did not match the declared specifications and models, so the batch of graphics cards was sampled and submitted for inspection in accordance with the law. After identification, the actual specifications and models of 5,840 graphics cards did not match the declaration, and the value of the goods exceeded 20 million.


    While the images show it pretty clearly is an XFX QICK card, Chinese website MyDrivers speculates that the card in picture is an international version of the XFX SPEEDSTER QICK Radeon RX 6700 XT. This second image really shows the scale of the capture as there appear to be piles of boxes filled with GPUs.




    The official website for XFX China has also been closed temporarily which is a little suspect and might be indicating that it may be directly involved. Though, MyDrivers says that XFX China did not respond to the story. However, according a MyDrivers report from 2020, XFX was allegedly involved in the illegal selling of many AMD Radeon RX 500 series, and RX 5000 series GPUs, directly to mining farms.
