Although there ARE ETH-mining ASIC machines out there, they don't (yet?) dominate ETH mining, in the same manner than ASICs dominate BTC mining these days. GPUs can still effectively mine ETH, thankfully, as the algorithm was designed to be ASIC-resistant.Most crypto now is mined by dedicated purpose built hardware built just to mine major cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum. It's dozens of times faster than a video card for that purpose.
