Passware Kit Running on 32 Cores
GPU Acceleration for RAR Password Recovery
Distributed Password Recovery

Passware Kit accelerates password-recovery processes using hardware.

Multiple CPUs

Passware Kit utilizes multi-core computers efficiently. Password-recovery speed is increased scalable to the number of CPUs on a computer.

NVIDIA and ATI GPU

GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) cards help to accelerate password recovery by up to 45 times. Passware Kit supports all types of NVIDIA GeForce cards, TESLA, and other CUDA cards, as well as AMD ATI.

Passware Kit automatically detects NVIDIA and ATI cards available for acceleration on a target computer and uses them to speed up the password search process. It can use multiple cards simultaneously.

NVIDIA GTX 680/780 Titan cards are highly recommended. If energy consumption is a problem, then choose NVIDIA Tesla. More cost-efficient cards are AMD Radeon R9 series, or AMD FirePro if you need a more energy-efficient solution.

NOTE: The performance of NVIDIA cards depends on the version of the driver installed. The maximum password recovery speed on NVIDIA cards is achieved using driver GeForce 340.52 or 333.11 for Tesla.
