Thanks, I obviously committed it although the normal variation between benchmarks seem to outsize the boost ;-)

Have you had any look at Atom's findings btw?

AFAICT it's only applicable for dumb BF *) and naturally only for raw SHA1. This make it a lot less interesting. Nevertheless he did a good job. I haven't been able to find any info on whether it's currently implemented in hashCat or not?

*) OK, it could also be a mask mode modulating the first four characters, as long as we're talking W[0]. And one could probably target any of W[1]..W[13] instead.
