Re: Status and how to help

There has been some significatn development in Cuckoo Cycle.
Xenoncat, the anonymous Zcash miner contest winner, recently
claimed a $5000 CPU speedup bounty, by using 20x more memory
to bucketsort the edge->endpoint map and thereby avoid the high latency
random memory accesses.
Basically, with enough memory available, Cuckoo Cycle is transformed
from a latency bound PoW into a bandwidth bound one.
I'm in the process of writing my own version of his solver, after which
I will port that to CUDA. Then the next challenge will be to extract the
maximum performance out of the GPU solver. An OpenCL solver will
have to come later...
