HASHCAT CPU
#1
Hi,

Is it still possible to use Hashcat without GPU ? Only with CPU ?

Cause it asked me to install the OpenCL Intel Drivers. I did it but it still not working.

run hashcat -I and see if your CPU is detected. Then if it is you should have no problems using it with hashcat. In fact, many slow hashes are significantly FASTER with CPUS rather than GPUS.

Heres an example:

Make sure to use -D 1 to enable CPUs in case you have GPUs, too.
