No... well, almost: In the (few) cases where the OpenCL format using the CPU device is as fast as a plain CPU format, you could just use "--format=md5crypt-opencl --fork=2 -dev=all" and it would use one process for GPU and another process using all CPU cores via OpenCL. Other than that, I'd recomment either using the --node option to split the job in parts and run them separately, or simply run two different attacks (eg. one using mask mode on GPU and another using wordlist mode on CPUs). magnum
