In fact the number on hashcat page is incorrect. Speed can be pushed to as
far as 143K c/s on 7970 @ stock clock with newer drivers. Of course that
means using the most aggressive settings. hashkill's performance can also
be tweaked to surpass 140K c/s if we are using higher GWS, however the
hardcoded maximum right now does not allow that (I should increase it for
the --double mode though). In both cases (hashkill/hashcat tweaked) desktop
becomes rather...unresponsive so that's the price you pay for the
