Hashcat performance on AWS EC2 GPU instances

GPU’s are more suitable than CPU’s because GPU’s are designed to perform work in parallel. Therefore, when there are many identical jobs to perform (like the password hashing function) a GPU scales much better. Hence I was interested in benchmarking Hashcat with the AWS EC2 p3 & g4 instances.
