Length 4 is significantly faster than length 8. Our GPU benchmark use length 6. The speed suffers as soon as *any* password in a keys-per-crypt batch is longer. Unfortunately this is often the case for wordlist runs. You can mitigate it by sorting the file by length but adding --rules to the mix will render that effort pointless. > > Also, I had over 7000 c/s [for length 6] at one point, using 7970. I have tried to find out why it has dropped but can't see why. It might be a driver thing. The nvidia speed is better than ever (but still low). You could try raising HASH_LOOPS to 64 (or some other power of 2) for a boost (but this is not the real answer for the performance drop). There is a hard limit for 200 ms anyway, but if that means you get higher speed at lower GWS it will mitigate the variable-length problem a little too. magnum
