I just took Claudio's SHA-512 as base and optimised it a little for iterated use. Actually I think he has a separate kernel for nvidia that I do not yet use. The format is still just first PoC. So much to do, so little time... Curious. Claudio's sha512crypt-opencl code actually performs very well on NVIDIA (yes, separate kernel), but not so well (compared to other tools) on ATI/AMD, including on the 7970. In this context, it's a bit puzzling that it outperformed hashkill on the 7970 at Office 2013. Perhaps there's something unoptimal in Claudio's code specific to sha512crypt, which thus did not make it into office2013-opencl. > On 12 Dec, 2012, at 20:59 , Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> wrote: > > Also tried 1225 MHz (which previously worked fine for bf-opencl) - got > > ASIC hang after a few minutes, at 82C (although the card can be stable > > at higher temperatures - previously observed up to 88C with other > > formats).

Yes. > Maybe you went over that 200ms "death threshold" for each kernel call. Actually, probably yes. There was no ASIC hang at lower clock rates, but this could be a mere coincidence. Alexander
