Only ZTEX 1.15y (and its compatible clones), and only for 7 hash types

It depends.  For most purposes, you'd use GPU or/and sometimes CPU now.
For bcrypt and descrypt, you'd consider FPGA.  If you have those FPGAs
anyway, then you'd also use them for the remaining 5 hash types.

For your current attempts with Tezos, it's just GPU and CPU.
