Indeed - JS20 blade; I had no idea how much faster it would be against DES, but I'm incredibly pleased. The 1.6GHz 970s in this box are nearly 70% faster against DES than a 2.4GHz Xeon, thanks to your Altivec optimization. > FWIW, you might get slightly better performance at some hash types if > you use the linux-ppc32-altivec target instead. I'll give it a whirl - I've built the whole thing w/64-bit userland, but depending on how much more 32-altivec gives me, 32-bit libs may arrive to stay.
