    Default Latest on gpu cracking?

    I recently got a gtx 580 and after i ran a couple benchmarks on it i wasnt too impressed, when comparing my results to some of the ati cards. I averaged around 37000 pmks as opposed to some ati cards running around 50 to 70,000. Ive been researching pyrit and ati for about a week now and im still unclear on a couple things...

    I read that you can only run one ati card at a time with pyrit, does anyone know if this has yet been corrected?

    I know that ati has also had many driver issues with linux and was wondering if anyone knows if driver support has gotten any better.

    Id like to do a multiple ati setup but dont want to waste time or money on an unstable buggy system so any advice or guidance would be appreciated, thank you

    Yes you can use multiple GPU's via pyrit and OCLhashcat. (from my experience). Perhaps if you posted where you saw that you couldn't, we could better address your question.

    as far as multiple cards i was talking about ati specifically i don't know whether its true or not... just what i read. I couldn't tell you exactly where. as far as the driver support issue with ati, i read a post where purehate was talking about it. that was a while ago thats why i was asking if anyone knew whether or not it has been addressed yet.

    Currently its pretty simple, ATI is faster but has crappy buggy drivers and less development and Nvida, while slower has top notch support and development, actively updating the tools chain and is 100 times more stable drivers and code. I am pretty sure most ATI multi card issues are worked out but I am not 100% sure. It basically boils down to this:
    Whats more important Speed or Quality

    Well I think the cloud is the future in this regard. It will give access to Tesla cards which should be able to give you access to a 3.4 million keys per second for around 3$/hour.

    The tools to utilize the cloud should be released at BH Europe this year.

    well I went ahead and picked up a couple ati cards and got everything up and running but regardless of whether I'm have the cards configured with crossfire or not im still getting the same results. Its just sharing the workload instead of increasing performance. anyone know how to configure multiple cards in pyrit so they don't just share workloads?

    Crossfire or Anything SLI actually decreases performance so dont use it. I wish I could help but as I said I use nvidia since ATI drivers are so buggy. Perhaps some of our ATI users will chime in and help out.
