Article says they can brute force passwords at 3.3 billion/second with a GPU, compared to only 9.8 million/second with the CPU.  Curious what some of you guys can get with your rigs. Smiley

According to NIST and ECRYPT II, the cryptographic algorithms used in Bitcoin are expected to be strong until at least 2030. (After that, it will not be too difficult to transition to different algorithms.)

add 1-2 zeroes to those numbers, this would give you the ballpark idea.... though people are kind of busy with bitcoin mining and do not care about passwords much....

Old news is old.

Where do you think the inspiration for some of these miner implementations came from?
