News Smuggler Hid Over 200 Alder Lake CPUs in Fake Silicone Belly

Sorry to say, but the "Intel Inside" joke is not accurate. They should've been smuggling these like drugs and then it would've been "Intel Inside". This was more like "Intel Under" xD

Regards.

Even pregnant women need to go through the metal detector, so I wonder what she was thinking: that the Alder Lake CPUs are made of plastic?

Might also have to do with the fact that intel processors dont have pins on the bottom rather just contact points the pins are in the motherboard CPU socket. AMD processors have pins on the bottom so if they tried to move them without protecting the pins they'd bend and possibly break off.

She would’ve been successful if she tried to smuggle 86 Intel Processors. Doesn’t she know the magic number is 86?

Can't they just buy them there?
17% VAT in mainland China but 0 in Hong Kong and Macau. Lots of people do it because it's a quick half day trip on the bus or train. Chinese mainland custom bust one occasionally to scare people. Not that different from other borders where sales tax and VAT differ, or just to get cheap gas or drugs (the legal kind).

We have banned exporting our processor technology to China, whether consumer or government. The question is, does the Chinese government keep them? If so, maybe this is a way for the Chinese government to bypass the export ban.

As they say the chinese arent the smartest apple from the tree. Them smuggling Intel and not AMD is just another jab at how Anti AMD this website is. We all know from the benchmarks that AMD trades blows with Intel latest 13th gen, so 12th gen is behind. And efficiency wise AMD is currently beating Intel per watt. It just shows how dumb the chinese are just like this website.
