I'm only interested on the multi-GPU stuff with Nvidia. Any GTX 550 on sale seems perfect. > What APU would you want to see there, and why? Once i saw a user trying to use some APU with JtR (for md5crypt-opencl, sha51crypt-opencl and a few more opencl stuff). I got the feeling that it (JtR) could do better. Of course, it could be cheap hardware running on notebooks. Since then i have a desire to put my hands on one. Some points to clarify: - this hybrid HW seems to be important from now on. At least on development coutries (i guess). - since any CPU is ok (?), why not an APU? > We'll want a CPU with AVX2 when these become available for purchase. So, APU is offlist. Claudio
