This thing can do traditional Equihash<200,9>, which requires about 140 MB of memory.
This thing cannot do Equihash<144,5>, which is used in Equihash-BTG and requires well over 2GB of memory. It would need an order of magnitude more memory cells, on a chip which would be correspondingly hyuge.
Putting more of these chips in a box does more Equihash<200,9>, but still cannot do Equihash<144,5>.
