As commercial successors of governmental ASIC solutions have become available, also known as custom hardware attacks, two emerging technologies have proven their capability in the brute-force attack of certain ciphers. One is modern graphics processing unit (GPU) technology,[page needed] the other is the field-programmable gate array (FPGA) technology. GPUs benefit from their wide availability and price-performance benefit, FPGAs from their energy efficiency per cryptographic operation. Both technologies try to transport the benefits of parallel processing to brute-force attacks. In case of GPUs some hundreds, in the case of FPGA some thousand processing units making them much better suited to cracking passwords than conventional processors.Various publications in the fields of cryptographic analysis have proved the energy efficiency of today's FPGA technology, for example, the COPACOBANA FPGA Cluster computer consumes the same energy as a single PC (600 W), but performs like 2,500 PCs for certain algorithms. A number of firms provide hardware-based FPGA cryptographic analysis solutions from a single FPGA PCI Express card up to dedicated FPGA computers. WPA and WPA2 encryption have successfully been brute-force attacked by reducing the workload by a factor of 50 in comparison to conventional CPUs and some hundred in case of FPGAs.
Following their original adventures, and with all four members eventually getting into bank robbing, the group naturally developed the desire to rob a bank together, the opportunity arising after Yuno and Dundee robbed a Fleeca bank with Donnie Pecorino and Tony Corleone and successfully acquired a blue dongle. Deciding to use it in conjunction with Benji and X, the group quickly gathered together and messily prepared a simple, risky and very fun escape plan, changing clothes so that they all looked like various versions of Yuno and driving north towards Paleto. There, Yuno easily hacked the bank as X and Benji negotiated with the police, and soon they were all back in their car, with Dundee masterfully driving back to the city where he'd eventually lose seven cruisers and Air-1 in one of the last escapes in the city where the criminals managed to out-drive the police force.Making their way towards Grapeseed, the group of friends changed into four different cars and separated for the evening, all of them buzzing with energy and preparing to do more heists together. However, with Jean Paul's frequent cruises out of the city and the remaining members busying themselves with their own groups, the energy grew cold and was eventually shattered as X had to flee from the city, the dream of hitting the Vault together vanishing in thin air.While X was away, Yuno, Dundee and Benji would often recall their adventures together fondly, and often expressed bitterness over the fact that they could never have more adventures together. 2b1af7f3a8
