sha256-simd VS cpu

Compare sha256-simd vs cpu and see what are their differences.


Accelerate SHA256 computations in pure Go using AVX512, SHA Extensions for x86 and ARM64 for ARM. On AVX512 it provides an up to 8x improvement (over 3 GB/s per core). SHA Extensions give a performance boost of close to 4x over native. (by minio)


cpu command in Go, inspired by the Plan 9 cpu command (by u-root)
