ASIC article revert[edit]

(moved out of my talk page to where the talk belongs Staszek Lem (talk) 19:48, 20 January 2017 (UTC))

On your revert to my edit on ASIC article, I believe machine learning ASIC merits inclusion in the article. Considering the limited scope on the History section for this article, it could include some additional detail on modern implementation of application-specific instances of use. Having the argument that it is a general purpose article I don't think itself merits removal of the content. Any questions/comments let me know, but since this is still a start-class article, I think adding new info on it is a helpful inclusion. Shaded0 (talk) 03:24, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

@Shaded0: - There are zillions of various types of ASICs. This is a standard type of device, a generic type of integrated circuits. Just like with GPU, SIMD, etc., it makes no sense to list some of many applications without particular reason, such as a breakthrough in arhitecture, lion market stare, etc., discussed in independent sources. Same as with articles internal combustion engine or doorknob. Each piece of information has its hierarchical article scope. YOu write in bitcoin article what kind of ASIC it uses, not vice versa. Staszek Lem (talk) 19:46, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
So, pulling from your example of GPU, the article includes several references to implementations such as Geforce, Radeon, Windows NT Desktops, etc. For anyone not familiar with ASICs, adding info on usage in technology and evolution of use seems reasonable for context on the subject. If your problem is an issue with the content and sources I have added, please be direct and tell me what is the issue with the content added. Shaded0 (talk) 20:30, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
Radeon, Geforce are well known major players in GPU. Are there any sources which claim that bitcoin is a major payer in ASIC field? Same with others. In other words, keep in mind WP:UNDUE. Staszek Lem (talk) 20:52, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
BTW please see Field-programmable_gate_array#Modern_developments for an example how particular companies are mentioned in conjunction of novel approaches. Not simply new usage. Staszek Lem (talk) 20:55, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
Alright I understand your point now, thanks for explaining. To address your second comment, this is a good reference and would be helpful to see something like that added to this article. The citations on this article also really need to be improved or added upon. Shaded0 (talk) 21:17, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
