Obviously, if you could get a big chip company to build a custom chip that computes hashes as fast as possible then you would have the edge on other miners - but this isn't likely to happen. An alternative is to use an ASIC, which is an integrated circuit that can be customized by modifying the interconnects rather than building an equivalent chip from scratch.

It seems to me that the author has confused ASICS with FPGAs :/
