Help please.I'm still new about hashcat and cracking. I have few questions:

1. How can I improve the speed using hashcat?

Here's what I got:
Device #1: GeForce 210, 978MB, 1402Mhz, 2MCU
Device #1: Allocating 0MB host-memory
Device #1: Kernel ./kernels/4318/m0400.sm_12.32.cubin

Speed........: 3803 c/s Real, 3830 c/s GPU

2. Which one should I use? Regular hashcat (CPU) or CudaHashcat

Here's what I got:
- i7
- Nvidia GeForce 610m

3. Speed........: 3749 c/s Real, 3678 c/s GPU

What's the meaning of c/s Real?

The only way to significantly improve your speed is to buy a better GPU, preferably an AMD one.

If your card is CUDA enabled then use CudaHashcat.

Quote from hashcat-plus wiki.

Quote:What does Real c/s and GPU c/s mean ?

Real c/s is derived from dividing all tested passwords from zero to present from the moment oclHashcat-plus started. This is often a lower figure as it takes into account copying wordlists into GPU memory and also the PCI-Express overhead.

GPU c/s is derived from dividing the time for the last 32 kernel launches by the number of finished passwords from the previous 32 kernel launches. This figure is usually higher than Real c/s as there is no time lost copying the wordlist or PCI-Express overhead.

In general GPU c/s is a more accurate representation of oclHashcat-plus's performance as wordlist loading is dependant on the I/O performance of the users computer.
