Sorry for this, guess it is because I "use" this mailing list more as a message board, rather than an email list, I have actually never gotten any emails.... I just use http://blog.gmane.org/gmane.comp.security.openwall.john.user where the style is more board-like, hence the need for qouting the previous message when replying is not that neccessary to understannd the answer. But I will try to remember that this is indeed intended to be an email list. > > Speaking of the benchmark results posted by "websiteaccess": > > Benchmarking: Traditional DES [128/128 BS SSE2]...

I see... and this is at default speeds... and well overclocked Conroe should be able to get us above the 2500K c/s mark then.... if only I hadn't just recently bought AMD64 ;) Oh well, AMD has been known as the king of Floating Point Operations in the past, they will be again...

Does this apply to Linux vs Windows as well? As far as I could tell, latest version of JTR would theoretically yield higher speeds on linux64 on an AMD64 cpu compared to windows... However, I did test this and saw no higher speeds on Linux64 compared to windows32.... could be related to compilation though..not sure...
