Why did you remove benchmark for SHA1/SHA2?

Hello,

why did you remove benchmark for SHA1/SHA2?

this benchmark could be hardware accelerated

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_SHA_extensions

As a hashing algorithm, SHA1 is obsolete.  It's also redundant when you have a more modern implementation of SHA.  But, to make sure not to leave it behind completely, you can still run the SHA1 benchmark from the GPGPU Benchmark panel (AIDA64 / main menu / Tools / GPGPU Benchmark / double-click on the box in the x64 column, third line from the bottom).

SHA1, but not SHA2.

NIST does not currently plan to withdraw SHA2 or remove it from the revised Secure Hash Standard.

AIDA64 has never implemented a SHA2 benchmark...
