Results

JDK 21 brings a 4X speed improvement to SHA512 hashing so that M1/M2 chips are now roughly double the speed of Intel chips. Prior JDK versions were 1/4 the speed seen here.

Figures assume that the Mac Pro is not running in slow mode.

The 2023 Mac Pro M2 Ultra hashes at an astounding 29 GB/sec, faster than the fastest 8-blade 16-lane PCIe SSD can deliver (20-24 GB/sec).
