For a GT 630 (compute capability 2.1) using a vector of 3 elements for
NTLM hashing give a ~15-20% performance increase compared with a
vector of 1 element. I think vectors of 2-3 elements are best because
they reduce the number of registers providing sufficient parallelism,
but i do not test this assertion in a 3.5 GPU.
