Perhaps I wasn't clear with what I said? I understood your post fine, your speed appears to be decreasing over time. When you restart, the speed appears to be "increased" back to being fast but then f...

Post: RE: Feature request: checkpoint, falling speed

This is likely a visual issue and not a "real" speed increase. What it sounds like you are doing is running multiple different wallets, some are likely slower than others as the difficulty is configur...

Post: RE: 1080ti

It might be important to note that while you CAN buy many 1080Ti's for the price of a 4090, you can't actually run that many 1080Ti's without spending extra money on supporting hardware that isn't nee...

You're using the collider mode which is limited to 5 bytes to attack the short RC4 key. Use 9700 for regular cracking, not 9710.

Post: RE: add a function to filter letters combinations

Unfortunately, Snoopy is likely correct about the performance impacts. A significant portion of the speed of hashcat in mask/bruteforce mode comes from being able to generate and distribute work extre...

No need to share, I'm pretty sure the problem is the 2147422012. This value is incredibly high, either it's an error or a new value that the modules/kernels aren't ready to support. Changing it to be ...

Use the GPU and leave the CPU for the host side processing. Using both usually leads to a lower net hash rate because the GPU relies on the CPU to feed it work. Unfortunately, there's not much perform...

This speed difference is specific to a handful of modes/optimized kernels. You've unfortunately picked 2 of the few where it's impactful. What's going on from a technical standpoint is that if there i...

This is likely a combination of factors that may not be so obvious. When hashcat starts up there is a list of optimizers that show what can be applied in the current attack. As you change things about...

Ideally you want to get something that actually can serve at least x8 3.0 lanes to each card or use multiple rigs. I've been building off AMD Epyc systems recently, 2nd gen and similar, and using SFF-...

Your motherboard is going to kill a large percentage of your effective speed in any real attack due to the limitation of just x1 PCIe lanes per card. Mining equipment should NOT be used for hashcat, i...

Wallets have different numbers of rounds and thus run at different speeds. No realistic amount of GPUs will ever make x12 ?a possible, at all. You would need on the order of 60,000 4090s to bring ...

36^16 is completely unreasonable. That's 7,958,661,109,946,400,884,391,936 possible candidates. A 4090 will do 2,700,000 per second, which would take 93,469,440,098 YEARS to complete.
