    This is a brief guide to using AMD GPUs and OpenCL for password cracking benchmarks using oclHashcat. It is very easy.

    Initial setup steps:
    Benchmarking with oclHashcat
    • Goto the oclHashcat folder
    • Use the following command (assuming 64 bit OS)
    Code:
    oclHashcat64.exe -b --benchmark-mode=1
    
    If you want to save the results to a file "benchmark_results.txt" instead:
    Code:
    oclHashcat64.exe -b --benchmark-mode=1 > "benchmark_results.txt"
