If this applies to the "Traditional DES" / "Many salts" benchmark, which is arguably the most essential one for JtR, then a rate of 1.6M c/s can be achieved on a single PowerPC G5 at 2.7 GHz (with AltiVec). P4 at around 3 GHz can achieve somewhere up to 1M c/s, too, with the SSE2 code in JtR 1.7.2+. > u can guess john is multithreaded =) No, it is not. Moreover, I had previously mentioned why multi-threading is likely not the best way to parallelize John: http://www.openwall.com/lists/john-users/2006/04/27/5 -- Alexander Peslyak <solar at openwall.com> GPG key ID: 5B341F15 fp: B3FB 63F4 D7A3 BCCC 6F6E FC55 A2FC 027C 5B34 1F15 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments -- To unsubscribe, e-mail john-users-unsubscribe@...ts.openwall.com and reply to the automated confirmation request that will be sent to you.
