Is hashcat able to utilize the cores in a Xeon PHI ?
#1
Looking at getting a 68 core Xeon PHI and wondering if hashcat can make use of it?  There is an OpenCL runtime for it..

There's a limit to 128 devices per instance, but I can simply increase this in the sourcecode without the need of changing anything else. This is mostly related to memory allocations.

It should be possible to use a 68 core CPU from hashcat perspective. However, it's unknown how the OpenCL runtime works with it. So while it's known to have hashcat clusters with much higher numbers of nodes, it's never tested before to have that many cores in a single node. I'd say try and report back Wink

These are widely used in the HPC space, so twould be interesting to see the results.
