    I've currently switched from IgorWare Hasher to RapidCRC Unicode, and the speed difference is night and day; RapidCRC Unicode can calculate an MD5 hash in 23 seconds for a 5GB ISO file:

    So far, I've found FastSum comes close in second place at 28 seconds for the same file:

    But are there even faster MD5 hasher apps available? (Maybe some with GPU acceleration?)

    All tests are done from an 8GB 2,200 MB/s DDR3 RAMdisk, so disk i/o shouldn't be a bottleneck.

    I can get 15-17 seconds on a 6,780,092,416 byte file consistently using md5sum and my program below on linux, does it have to be a gui?

    Why do people still use MD5? SHA-256 is much more efficient and accurate.

    I'm just benchmarking, otherwise I typically do SHA-256 also. I just need speed now.

    Fair enough.
