Meanwhile, the California-based technology company and the world’s largest semiconductor chip manufacturer by revenue, Intel, has revealed that the company will contribute to the development of blockchain technologies by offering energy-efficient accelerators. Intel executive Raja M Koduri explained that the company expects its circuit innovations will deliver “1000x better performance per watt” than today’s GPU or SHA256-based mining equipment. Koduri in a blog post discussed blockchain technology and the new custom compute group. He explained that Intel is fully aware that there are some blockchains that translate to an immense amount of energy. The Intel executive said that the company’s customers are asking for scalable and sustainable solutions. In order to bolster these concepts, Intel has formed a new custom compute group within the company’s Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics business unit. “The objective of this team is to build custom silicon platforms optimised for customers’ workloads, including blockchain and other custom accelerated supercomputing opportunities at the edge,” said the blog post.
