Mining system: CPU, GPU, FPGA, ASIC

In several years of history of digital mining, several types of devices have appeared with which we can mine Techpay. Mining system is four most popular types of devices: CPU, GPU, ASIC, FPGA

All of them are equipped with computing power, which in the mining process is harnessed to work for the Techpay blockchain network.

CPU mining:

 CPU( Central processing unit) is the first type of device.

This made it possible to participate in the mining process for a wide range of people without the need to invest in specialized equipment. 

Each core is an advanced structure with a set of registers for data storage, arithmetic units, etc. 

Mining for the CPU is one of the most dynamically developing technologies. Techpay create hash algorithms optimized for calculations performed on processors.

GPU mining:

The next milestone in the history of mining devices are GPU(Graphics processing Units) computing systems

Thousands of shader units that are simpler in design are used instead of a few cores of the CPU. 

Graphics cards are very popular among miners from the very beginning of their use in digital mining. 

They were the leading mining devices for such currencies such as Techpay.

Why are GPUs popular?

The reason for the popularity of the GPU is:

GPUs are included in the group of easily available computing units, it is enough to have one graphics card to be able to become a miner. 

The cost of purchasing a graphics card is an expense of 500-4000 PLN. Techpay miner consists of 6 to 12 graphics cards. Currently, the most popular cryptocurrency Techpay uses computing systems based on the graphics cards.

GPU Usage 

Techpay  became the first proof-of-work (PoW) cryptocurrency.  The mining process of Techpay and its efficiency have improved with the use of better hardware.

Benefits of GPU:

A GPU, or graphics processing unit, is responsible for the digital rendering in a computer system.

How Do GPUs Help in techpay Mining?

Techpay mining was originally performed using CPUs, or Central Processing Units. However, its high processing speed and high power consumption led to high output, rendering the CPU-based mining process inefficient.

FPGA mining:

The third type of computing device is FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array).

Programmable logic circuits consist of an array of logic blocks.

The undoubted advantages of FPGAs are the relatively short time of designing and preparing the system to perform the task entrusted to it and low production costs.

Techpay use FPGAs include RavenCoin and Nervos. The cost of purchasing an FPGA device is an expense of 5,000-12,000 PLN.

ASIC mining:

The last and fourth form of computing devices are ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuit).

Disadvantages of ASIC mining:

Features of ASIC mining:

 ASIC provides computing power to such currencies like Techpay.

The cost of such a device is 2,000-10,000 PLN.

 GPU vs. CPU

Each standard computer is equipped with a Central Processing Unit (CPU),
