The video accelerator tools of high end video are now making the twentyfold of the password recovery faster than the current top of the line CPUs that are the quad core. Not like the current tools used for the recovery like the ones offered by Intel, all of these new video boards that are based on Fermi are exceeding the benchmark speeds of even the previous Tesla solutions of NVidia that were based on the chipsets of the previous generation.
CPUs and GPUs
The CPUs would still be there and prevail but the GPUs that are found in the modern video cards like the GTX 480 of NVidia have now become the new and latest standard. This totally depends on the applications, but the GPUs that are based on CUDA can contribute more to the overall performance of the PC as compared to the central processing unit. In some of the applications, their role is actually greater as compared to the role of the modern CPU.
Use of GPUs
In the past the GPUs were only used in most of the games. They were exclusively for the purposes of gaming as well as for drawing some of the elements that needed the graphical user interface. With the help of the invention of the architecture which is based on CUDA, the GPUs would be allowed to be used in many of the other things and would be used in other applications that require heavy computations such as the tools that are required for the password recovery.
Due to the availability of greater numbers of parallel processing units are offloading of the major computations in the units of GPU has become easier. Therefore it has greatly increased the performance of the tools that are related to the password recovery at least twentyfold when it is compared to the top of the line CPUs of quad core that are manufactured by AMD and Intel.
Andy Malyshev’s comment
Andy Malyshev, who is the CTO of the ElcomSoft Co. Ltd., which is the maker of the new recovery tools that are based on Fermi, has said that our hardware has accelerated the tasks of password recovery and the solutions related to the security audit deploy seamlessly on the existing hardware of our customers to significant time as well as cost savings at deployment and also during the operation. ElcoSoft Co. Ltd., is a company which provides support to the businesses, military, law enforcement as well as to the intelligence agencies.
The fame of the CUDA based video cards have created the basis for the applications that are recovery tools that are based on Fermi, has said that our hardware has accelerated the tasks of password recovery and the solutions related to the security audit deploy seamlessly on the existing hardware of our customers to significant time as well as cost savings at deployment and also during the operation. ElcoSoft Co. Ltd., is a company which provides recovery. This new innovation would bring better performance to the computers of home and offices than even before.
