Submission + - CUDA-Based SHA Hash Cracker for EngineYard Contest (nvidia.com)

Professor_Quail writes: The EngineYard Programming Contest will be starting today, but chances are if you haven't heard about it, then you won't have the time to put a solution together. However, if you have an nVidia-based graphics card, one nVidia forum member put together some code that is able to check over 200 million hashes/sec on a fast card, making it your best bet to win the contest (unless you have access to a Beowulf cluster you can use ;). The grand prize is an iPhone 3GS and $2000 of cloud computing credits. Good luck!
