SHA512 Linux
#1
I'm trying to run a dictionary attack on Linux password hashes with my AMD 7850, I only get about 5500 H/s, is this a realisitic figure or am I doing something wrong here? I'm using the following command

Code:
oclhashcat64 -m 1800 -a 0 --remove hashes.txt -o cracked.txt mydictionary.txt

That looks about right, given your card.  sha512 is a slow hash.
