Xeon phi
A random thought has just come to mind, has any one tried using the Intel Xeon phi with hashcat?

Any odd bug's or weird things happen when you tried it, what was the speed like etc, etc.
It is not currently supported. It flat out won't work - period.
That's a shame, any reason why it's not supported?
Because atom has not added support for it yet.

Further, the JTR folks have evaluated it and it's not that impressive for crypto right now.
