Thanks Alex now it makes sense :). One last question just to be sure I
completely got this.

Would I be correct if I say that the exponent 20 comes from the 2^20
bytes in 1 GiB RAM?

So going up to 4 GiB RAM changes it to 22. (i=iterations)

20+log2(i) -> 22+log2(i)

For 4 GiB against ASICs the equation changes as below?
20+20-log2(8*4)+log2(i) -> 22+22-log2(8*4)+log2(i)
