Maybe because you didn't use the "--force-scalar" option before?

This varies.  It is common for the CPU to be faster than its embedded
GPU.  However, you should be able to use both at once (usually with
separate "john" processes, or as two separate OpenCL devices) for maybe
better cumulative speed (unless the CPU throttles a lot worse when the
GPU is also in use).

Of course.  But now it's sane speed relative to the CPU.  This is just a
low-power device, which can't possibly be fast.


P.S. Somehow each time you post, you end up starting a new thread.  Are
you not using your mail program's "reply" feature?  You should, so that
the In-Reply-To header would be set (it is missing on your replies).
