Post: RE: Ryzen 1800X CPU with 1080 Ti GPU

From the results I have seen, there are at least 3 facts to point out: 1) Hashcat for CPUs must be an Intel-paid software or should be. It''s the single most optimized app in the whole planet ca...

@epixoip RyZen 7 1800X is a mainstream desktop CPU which can only be compared to a mainstream desktop CPU - apples to apples comparison And of course it's faster than the fastest mainstream desktop C...

You really like messing things up. RyZen 1800X can only be compared with Core i7 7700K from all that huge list you posted, just for impression. ALL the other Intel chips belong to Intel's HEDT f...

I tried to find figures and not opinions regarding cracking performance of Core i7 7700K and RyZen 7 1800X using hashcat in this forum, but didn't find any. After a lot of optimizations regarding m...

Ryzen 7 1800X is the best mainstream CPU for everything, even cracking.

Post: RE: Ryzen OpenCL benchmarks?

OK. Do you have benchmarks of hashcat and Core i7 7700K vs RyZen 7 at the same clock speed ? Or even not the same clock speed, we all can do the math. It would be useful to see various algos...

Not true. Embarrassingly parallel integer workloads like video decoding/encoding haven't managed to leverage AVX2 that much even using sophisticated hand-written ASM e.g x264 manages a 5% speed-up ...

Post: RE: Ryzen OpenCL benchmarks?

For mainstream desktop CPUs Intel offers 4C/8T and AMD offers 8C/16T For HEDT (High end desktop) Intel offers 12C/24T and AMD offers 16C/32T Leveraging AVX2 is far more difficult than multi-core...

Post: RE: Ryzen OpenCL benchmarks?

For mining, like cracking hashes, multi-core performance could be more important than AVX2 optimizations. RyZen 7 is 8C/16T and has almost double performance in mining than Core i7 7700K https:/...

The performance of RyZen in AES is amazing: https://s2.postimg.org/y9udaen3t/RYZEN7_1800_X_AES.jpg but not as much as SHA: https://s16.postimg.org/zf8zu1t5h/RYZEN7_1800_X_34.jpg

First unofficial OpenCL benchmarks of upcoming VEGA, indicate a 64 CU GPU core@1200MHz that is faster than 1080. Look at the bitcoin mining for example. https://s23.postimg.org/eizqm53tn/AMD_Ve...0x...

1. Stop being rude for such small things like a simple renaming - I actually used an older name of the app. 2. I can test it for you, as an end user of course.
