Hashcat running VERY slow

Hello everyone,

For some reason my hashcat is running very slow, it was running fine and then it started becoming slow and its now stuck being slow. It fixed itself for awhile, but its running slow again.

I looked up some benchmarks for 1070's and based on what I used to get this is EXTREMELY slow.

bcrypt has a cost factor

2 ^ cost factor is determining the iteration count. You can't compare apple to oranges. different cost factors imply different speeds

Yes, but the speed it used to run Bcrypt at is MUCH faster. I used to get around 5k per GPU. Everything I crack is much slower just not bcrypt. I'm really struggling to figure it out.

what are the number of salts and cost factors of the two runs that you are comparing ?

They must be identical to make any conclusions.

$2a$05$

for instance means 2^5 = 32 iterations, but for instance $2a$19$ means 2 ^ 19 = 524288 iterations.

524288 is much more than 32, $2a$19$ is much slower than $2a$05$

the more salts you have, the more combinations there will be each salt must be combined with each password.

If you look here you can see what they are supposed to be: https://hashcat.net/forum/thread-5440-page-5.html

Its running at almost half the speed of a 1070's benchmarked speed almost everywhere.

As phil has mentioned, your hash may have way more iterations which means it will run way slower than the benchmark indicates. 

Also to mention you're attempting 5 salts at once. 
[font=Verdana, Arial, sans-serif]Try a single salt and see if the speeds are more on par to what you're use too.[/font]
