What is the diffenrence? - Uraniumhazee - 04-04-2020

hashcat64.exe -w 3 -a 6 -m 2500 1029.hccapx test.txt ?d?d?d?d?d?d?d?d

There is a 1 word in text file in it = (ahmet) 

And all combinations take 42 days!

With this command

hashcat64.exe -w 3 -a 3 -m 2500 1029.hccapx ahmet?d?d?d?d?d?d?d?d

it takes 14 min to try all combinations

Two of them are same but why firtone takes too much time?

Different kinds of optimisations apply. They both try the same candidates but do so in very different ways.
