EIP-1057 is meant to protect the transition to Casper FFG by removing the possibility of custom ASIC influence. This allows an uninterrupted gradual transition period in which any kinks can be worked out. The new PoW algorithm permanently prevents custom ASICs by using an evolving hash function based on the block header, while also fully saturating functions in modern GPU architectures.
