Thanks for the prompt response.

Shortly after I sent the message, it occurred to me that TrueCrack's 15
p/s might be for just one thread, too.

The screenshot you have at shows Serpent and
Whirlpool instead of RIPEMD-160 and AES, which are apparently the
default.  Is this just to show that TCHead supports non-default settings
as well?  Is the 50 p/s speed for RIPEMD-160 and AES (thus directly
comparable to TrueCrack's)?
