Since more people are capable of competing it means that your effort from your home computer goes a longer way, however, it is more limited the sense that there are many GPU farms out there, but far fewer CPU farms.
Most people don’t have several idle CPUs at home, only 1 or a few and usually in use, so you can’t mine 24/7 at full power as you would with a specific machine for that like in the case of mining rigs.
In this way you can also put your funds on a stronger CPU for your personal use computer and you can mine with it in the background or at night.
The power consumption is far lower than a GPU array, since you only need to power one CPU.
So in the end you have a chance to actually acquire yet since many more people are able to participate then the competition remains fair. In this way you don’t have a specialized mining co consuming all of the SFX potential.
Unlike before, the cpu barely stood a chance, the tables turn now.
