BTW, with default hashcat config the speed is too bad, I need to use od6config and set it to higher fan and it work very well, because if the temp get around 95C the speed really goes down. I'm running now at 95% of fan and a bit of overclock. od6config --set core=1050,mem=1350 My speed is much better now. > > I tried just with hashcat until the moment, because with JtR it's not >> detecting Opencl.

One thing that called my attention is that hashcat is faster (at least on md5crypt-opencl that I was using), here it was almost 30% faster which is a good difference. I think it may be related with the options that I changed --gpu-accel and --gpu-loops for better performance. Is there something similar on JtR? > > One thing that called my attention is that hashcat do not make my GPU >> cooler get very noise as with od6config.

When we work with wordlists such as doing sort, grep, etc it's very slow on big wordlists even with fast storage, I believe it's because they work with one single core that is not that powerful. Do you know a way to make sort, grep, etc work with all the cores at the same time on a big wordlist? Or better, maybe a sort, grep, ... version that is GPU oriented? Thanks. > > magnum > >
