Monero forks every 6 months or so to prevent ASICs, but this doesn't fully deter ASICs from being built. Even with the new proposed RandomX pow algo, eventually ASICs will be built. What are some other proposed solutions to prevent ASICs?
Monero forks every 6 months or so to prevent ASICs
Monero does a fork, which we call a network upgrade, roughly every 6 months. The upgrade isn't specifically to "prevent ASICs", that has just been one of the many things that have gone into the last couple of upgrades. Features both big and small get released in these upgrades - including ASIC resistance changes.

This is not necessarily correct. An ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit), is built for one specific task (hence the Application Specific part of the name). RandomX/CryptoNightR are designed to be efficient on general purpose hardware by creating random tasks. A CPU (and GPU) are general purpose chips. For an ASIC to be developed that works with RandomX/CryptoNightR, it would essentially have to be designed in the same way as a CPU/GPU - e.g. be general purpose.
