*To*: scrypt@tarsnap.com*Subject*: Can someone help me estimate the costs of doing this?*From*: danielw@emaildoge.com*Date*: Sat, 27 Dec 2014 19:08:39 -0000*Importance*: Normal

On my computer, running scrypt (N: 2^14, r: 8, p: 4) on the string "00x00x00x00x00x00" with the salt "abc" takes on average 0.12 seconds. Do you know what kind of hardware would be needed to make this a thousand times, or ten thousand times, more efficient? (So that it would take 0.12/1000 or 0.12/10000 seconds.) How expensive hardware are we talking about? Millions of dollars, or less? Just looking for rough estimates.
