hashcat on parallella?
#1
Did anyone try to run hashcat on parallella bords?
Parallella have 16 Epiphany RISC cores.
There is 2 Arm 9 + FPGA core.


Edit:
There is version with 64 cores too.
There is Pine64 too that is cheaper 15$ and 2V that nice.

more information can be found on hxxps://***.parallella.org/board/



@admin
Is there any changes that need to be done so hashcat can work on parallella?

Does it have an OpenCL runtime?

It looks like it has OpenCL support using the COPRTHR-1 [1] library
There's also a quick start guide [2] with functions and data types listed which are supported.

@escugs: you shouldn't wait for the 64 core Parallella because all of them are sold out and there won't be any new ones in the near future.

This sounds bad, will there be a successor?

As far as I know they only produced prototypes of the 64 core chip.
The founder of Adapteva mentioned in the AmpHour podcast (episode 254) that a production run would cost 3 million dollars.
Their latest project is a Software Defined Radio board and I read somewhere in the forum that the 64 core Epiphany isn't a priority.
It's an interesting platform. Gou get an ARM A9 (dual core), a FPGA plus the 16 core Epiphany for 99$ and it draws only 5W.
However I don't think that 7 of these boards will outperform a GTX 1080 which would cost the same.

Thanks for the information.
I am sad to hear that 64 core is not making any more.

Then is the box type build.
