It is not magic wand to remove RAR password protection. If you don't understand words like "brute-force, dictionary attack, SHA1, AES, etc" you should probably try to find something else.
This software using ATI RV 670/770/870 and nVidia "CUDA" video cards to recover passwords for RAR archives v 3.x. Recovery speed at HD4850 about 20 times better than single core of Q6600 @ 2.4Ghz. (Comparing only optimized SSE2 code running on iCore. Currently only 2 programs heavily optimized for RAR 3.x recovery -- crark & ARCHPR). For non-optimized CPU versions it can be [place your favorite number here, like 100x or 200x].
Performance on nVidia cards slower than with ATI ones (because of nVidia GPU architecture). So, 8600 GT about 2x times faster than single core of Q6600 @ 2.4Ghz. GTX 260 /w 192SP about 12 times faster than single core of Q6600 @ 2.4Ghz.
Plain numbers (for RAR passwords with length == 4) are:
~168 passwords per second on single core of Q6600 @ 2.4Ghz (crark's result)
~325 passwords per second on 8600 GT
~3350 passwords per second on ATI HD4850
~2075 passwords per second on GTX260/192SP
Note that password recovery speed is not constant for RAR archive, it depends on password length (i.e shorter passwords will be checked faster than longer ones).
Only supported ATI cards are: based on RV670, RV740+ and RV870 (3870, 4770, 4850, 4870, 4890, 5870, etc).
Catalyst 9.9+ must be installed.There are some chances that it'll works with previous Catalysts but no point to do so. If you're getting "Cannot init, error = 19" it means you're need to update your video driver.
Support for RV670 isn't tested at all (as I don't have any such cards around and looks like nobody really cares about RV670 these days).
Only supported nVidia cards are: the ones with CUDA support, i.e. G80+. Was tested with 8600 GT, 8600 GTS, GTX260/192SP, GTX260/216SP, GTS250. Should work with anything G80+ I guess.
