what i meant to say is, anyone who wants to load JTR onto the NVidia
cards is going to have to ADD alot of code using the CUDA api.

i was referring to Elcomsofts free md5 cracker in previous post, the
open source PoC is much slower than the closed source.

For example, PoC example, using 1 kernel

8600GT - ~30M k/s
8800GT - ~90M k/s

version 0.2, using 8 kernels

8600GT - ~64M k/s
8800GT - ~232M k/s

these results were all using "dumb" brute force.

using a dictionary or hybrid attack would degrade performance, since
you'd have to transfer more data between the host CPU and GPU.
