In addition to my previous response: You wrote "for my format". This reminds me that you should move on to even faster hashes for these experiments. The SHA-512 stuff was a low hanging fruit in terms of bottleneck avoidance, and XSHA512 additionally let you avoid some bottlenecks in the "many salts" case. However, to really see the reason for and effect of bitmaps on GPU and such, you need to play with faster hashes, such as raw MD5 and raw SHA-1. Then whatever approaches you come up with there would also be usable for SHA-512, for some speedup (relatively smaller). Alexander
