ProgPoW FAQ

  1. If the Ethash PoW algorithm was replaced with ProgPoW, wouldn’t ASIC manufacturers be able to quickly look at the open source code, and create a specialized ASIC to mimic it?
  2. Would ProgPoW make it more difficult for GPU miners to mine on Ethereum?
  • High bandwidth memory (for DAG access)
  • Keccak f1600 engine (for the initial/final hashes)
  • Tiny compute core (for the inner loop FNV and address modulo)
Data from whattomine.com and asicminervalue.com, except for the Titan V
  • High bandwidth memory (for DAG access)
  • Keccak f800 engine (for the initial/final hashes)
  • Large SIMD register file (for the mix state)
  • High throughput SIMD integer math (for the random math)
  • High throughput SIMD cache (for the random cache accesses)
Relative efficiency of mining hardware
