It is "normal". OpenCL code for md5crypt is slower for opencl, it is because of lack of shared mem in opencl. For phpass on nvidia, cuda and opencl should have comparable speed ( not using shared only registers). For phpass on amd opencl is over 3x faster than nvidia card for the same price (gtx460-300kc/s 5850 ~950c/s). In my opinion we should have cuda build optimized for nvidia cards, and opencl build optimized for amd's, but still working if possible on nvidia's. This might require common set of available formats for cuda and opencl build. Lukas
