this kind of function already exist in every harddrive system my friend, and when the list of badblocks reach a limit, the harddrive cant deal with badbocks anymore, it is time to dump the harddrive in the trash, and buy a new one. https://datarecovery.com/rd/what-are-p-lists-and-g-lists/
Actually, that happens to any flash memory, the more you transfer at the maximum speed, the more it overheats, and when it overheats, it start throttling.
that means they are considering/researching about it my friend, but since it is another operational system, probably many things will need to change in the software codes, and that means double or triple the work to maintain it, also, consider that there is a MacOs version being worked, so, I would not wait more, find another alternative and you will be fine.
GPUs are unpredictable at certain operations, causing corruptions, or bit flipping, while, the difference of instructions set can be great from one GPU model to another, and giving support to many GPUs, even if they are CUDA compatible, will be going a hell. Anyway, a bit flipping in a image processing is not going to make a big difference, and that is why most of times data is not retrieved from GPUs back to CPU or memory. Also, transferring data to GPU from RAM have an undesirable delay.
Not really efficient, it is best to verify at the end, for one single reason, transfers runs at higher speed when it is a "stream", if you stop each time and verify, it would take more overall time to do the entire transfer.
I dont think it is time efficient, because you are doing the same thing multiple times, plus, some hashing algorithms are slow as hell. I think the best idea is to use a hashing that is efficient and also "collision free" (it means, the hashing is safer to use). One algorithm that fit both purposes is BLAKE2.
