Subject: Re: [john-dev] bitslice SHA-256 

...For practical speed-ups with bitslice SHA256 we need XOP or AVX512 instruction-sets. AVX512 probably provides speed-ups for SHA1 format also. MD5/MD4 formats uses less rotation/shifts, so bitslice is less useful and probably never practical.

I recall one thing. Bitslice SHA256 use only bitwise instructions, so it provides a big performance improvement on CPUs with only floating point bitwise operations, like AVX for example.
