Not for just games

Dual core, quad core, cross fire? Er- what? Not just for playing video games or making them look good. High resolution and FPS aren’t the only thing high end gaming display graphics cards are being used for. How about cracking passwords? While it’s not uncommon for the Air Force to be using them to government purposes but the everyday person who needs to crack some wifi passwords start shopping for an ATI video card.

The ATI Radeon HD5970 can outperform a Core i7-960 by 20 times when it comes to hardcore processing power. AND at the fraction of the cost. I don’t know exactly if that’s a good thing to make this hardware available at the local computer store, easily accessible by anyone with devious intentions.
