This week Intel’s “Optimized SHA-256 datapath for energy-efficient high-performance mining” patent, which was originally filed for on June 29, 2016, has finally been granted.
According to the patent’s technical description, the proposed processing system involves ‘micro-architectural optimizations’ that increase the efficiency of Bitcoin mining computations and reduce overall power consumption by as much as 15%.
“The hardwiring of these parameters eliminate the need for recursive rounds of computations of these parameters and reduce the overall circuit area and power consumption by about 15%.”
