Why not just have an increasing delay between logon attempts?

Car radio I had years ago started with a 5 second delay after the first attempt. Then just kept doubling. Doesn't matter how much CPU you throw at a problem if there's a 24 hour delay between attempts.

Password124 wouldn't be so bad then!
