- Stupid Simple Cooling Hack for 4 x HD 5970 in one Computer
I am asked sometimes why I used a cheap $60 motherboard with PCIe x1 slots and four $30 flexible PCIe x1 extenders to build this 4 x AMD Radeon HD 5970 graphics card machi
- 10 AMD/ATI GPUs in 1 Computer: SIGSEGV
After great success at running 8 GPUs under Linux in one machine , I have decided to try 10 GPUs (5 dual-GPU AMD Radeon HD 5970). Unfortunately the X11 fglrx driver crashe
- New Power Distribution to 4 x HD 5970
After putting about 100 hours of full load on my 4 x AMD Radeon HD 5970 brute forcing machine , I completely disassembled it to visually inspect all internal power connect
- Whitepixel v2: configurable charset, higher performance (33.1 billion password/sec!)
Barely after I released whitepixel v1 last week, version 2 is already available. It delivers basic configurable charsets, plus a solid +15% performance increase, reaching
- Whitepixel breaks 28.6 billion password/sec
I am glad to announce, firstly, the release of whitepixel , an open source GPU-accelerated password hash auditing software for AMD/ATI graphics cards that qualifies as the
