I am seeing the following benchmark under MacOSX and with 2.33 Ghz Core2 cpu. ./john -test -format:NT Benchmarking: NT MD4 [SSE2 5x]... DONE Raw: 13612K c/s real, 14764K c/s virtual The original patch produced the following benchmark: ./john -test -format:NT Benchmarking: NT MD4 [Rapid NT MD4]... DONE Raw: 6148K c/s real, 6405K c/s virtual Is the large benchmark speed increase real? -- To unsubscribe, e-mail john-users-unsubscribe@...ts.openwall.com and reply to the automated confirmation request that will be sent to you.
