Theo Valich reports ElcomSoft now supports both NVIDIA and ATI with its Wireless Security Auditor 1.0 tool. This application can crack WiFi passwords much faster by using the power of your GPU. NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 280 is more than 10x faster than a quad-core Q6600 processor from Intel while the dual-GPU ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 beats the Intel chip by more than 28x.
Today, ElcomSoft announced that the company expanded its support from Nvidia-only to support both ATI and Nvidia with its Wireless Security Auditor 1.0. This application is intended to audit wireless network security by “attempting to recover the original WPA/WPA2 PSK password protecting Wi-Fi Communications”.
Using ATI HD2000 and above or GeForce 8 and above cards, ElcomSoft WSA is currently the fastest Wi-Fi password recovery tool on the market. In order to support both GPU manufacturers, ElcomSoft developed its own patent-pending technologies which expanded on the original CUDA-powered algorithms.
