As I post few days before, the BarsWF run the MD5 bruteforce on Radeon 5870 with 1200M.
Now, I provide the following test in this program – IGhashGPU
You may go to the link here to their website.
Notice that the Radeon 5000 Series has even faster beta version to run the MD5 bf with another 33% performance improvement!!
At this moment, Radeon 5870 has 3200M performance, with the time from 1 min. 6 sec.(66 sec.) down to 50 sec : which is 16/66 = 24% time improvement!!
I have to say that this author is really rock!!
You may go to this link to have a complete comparison of all GPU(including nVidia’s latest GPU – GTX480/470).
nVidia, in this field, seems not the enemy of ATI.
According to the analysis/guess, ATI has its benefit in SP(Stream Processors), a Radeon 5870 has 1600 SPs, and a Radeon 5970 has even 1600*2 = 3200 SPs; Compared to GTX480 has 480 Cores only.
