go-github-com-minio-blake2b-simd 0.0.0-0.3f5f724 Fast hashing in pure Go of BLAKE2b with SIMD instructions
This package was initially based on the pure go BLAKE2b implementation of Dmitry Chestnykh and merged with the (cgo dependent) AVX optimized BLAKE2 implementation (which in turn is based on the official implementation. It does so by using Go's Assembler for amd64 architectures with a golang only fallback for other architectures.
In addition to AVX there is also support for AVX2 as well as SSE. Best performance is obtained with AVX2 which gives roughly a 4X performance increase approaching hashing speeds of 1GB/sec on a single core.
