With my system for example I'm running around 22,000 PMK/sec with my GTX 285 and 9,800 at the same time (14,000 and 6,000) respectively, with the rest being from my cpu. Here's the graph I found for this very very specific case of Pyrit which uses stream and cuda for computing PMKs (Pairwise Master Keys) for wpa passwords. Have a look at the graph.... they have yet to add data about the GTX 480 series.
Should I use profanity to describe my poor GTX295's sexual organ as a result of the chart in you just posted, snowmanwithahat? (Don't get me wrong, I'm just fine. But my poor GTX295 isn't... due to it seeing the chart....)
