Contributing to blockchain technologies, Intel will launch later this year a blockchain accelerator chip that will have over 1000x better performance per watt than mainstream GPUs for SHA-256 based mining, making it perfect for Bitcoin mining and minting NFTs.

Intel has also formed a new custom compute group within Intel’s accelerated computing systems and graphics business unit. The team will be working on custom silicon platforms optimized for customer workloads, including blockchain and other custom accelerated supercomputing opportunities at the edge.
