CS501 – Advance Computer Architecture
Graded Discussion Board
The Graded Discussion Board (GDB) will be open on the 18th and 19th of February 2020 for 48 hours.
Graded Discussion Board Topic
Crypto Mining means gaining cryptocurrencies by solving cryptographic equations through the use of computers and in short processors. cryptocurrency mining is a transactional process that involves the use of computers and cryptographic processes to solve complex functions and record data to a blockchain. The process involves validating data blocks and adding transaction records to a public record (ledger) known as a blockchain.
Earlier we had normal General Purposes Processers were used for processing or mining but now the trend has been shifted towards Graphics Processing Units (GPU) and Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC). Suppose, you have to choose among the stated GPU and ASIC for a Crypto Mining Process, which one you will choose and why?
Your answer must consider the Processing Speed, Processing Cost, Specifications, and Functionalities of both Processing Units. Do state your answer with respect to a specific algorithm results on both units.
