Hello

I am kinda stuck with this

Lets start with bitcoin

1- So bitcoin uses sha256 and Asic antminer is famous as a miner if we wanted to mine Btc.

1.1) Is Sha256 algorithm mineable with only cpu?
1.2) Antminer Hashpower only provides Sha256 , scrypt, x11, Quark, Qubit? This is consider as a cpuminer?

2 - According to https://whattomine.com/ , if we browse to the GPU section, we can see theres tons of algo like ethash, groestl, x11gost

2.1) Lets say other than the default graphic cards show in whattomine.com, how can i find out the hashrate for a specific gpu in all the algorithms?

3) I wanted to learn more about the algorithms, source of hash power produce and only through cpu or gpu, is there any source for it? I am not sure what's the query i should key in in google to look for the information, need help on it thanks!
