CS501 – Advance Computer Architecture

Graded Discussion Board

Dear Student,

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?

  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080
  • Antiminer K5 1130Gh

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.


Important instructions for GDB submission:

  • You must provide a precise and to the point answer.
  • Your answer should be no more than 5 to 6 lines so avoid irrelevant details.
  • Post your answer on the Graded Discussion Board (GDB), not on the Moderated Discussion Board (MDB).
  • GDB will only be open for 48 hours, no more time or grace day will be provided.
  • GDB will not be accepted via email after the due date.
  • Any answers copied from the internet or other student will get zero marks.

CS501 GDB Solution Fall 2020 - 2021 ||Advance Computer Architecture||

Cs501 GDB Solution
According to the data mining is crypto currency like bit coins .so we offered to use ASIC miner because, it is high performance and high hash rates in mining .ASIC not consume as GPU .it is more efficient and impressive, it is smaller in size and consume less space it provide high earning, so at last we find that we use ASIC for crypto mining process
