ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) - Specialized integrated circuits designed for mining a specific cryptocurrency. ASICs offer the highest performance and energy efficiency but have limited use cases.
CPU (Central Processing Unit) - Processors for mining cryptocurrencies. Although less efficient than ASICs and GPUs, they allow mining many different cryptocurrencies and are easy to set up.
GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) - Graphics cards used for mining cryptocurrencies. GPUs offer a wide range of applications, are flexible, and allow mining various cryptocurrencies.
