Fair enough. Certainly when the level system was created 17 years ago, P-1 and PRP were not considered, not to mention the latter didn't exist!

Luckily, we have some time to figure it out, and the...

The problem with levels 27-30 that you outlined is that it encourages the two P-1 stages to be separate and thus many of the second stages will likely be done on different systems than the first...

It also begs the question if P-1 should be done following reaching 92 bits or if we should wait until one system can do both P-1 stages and PRP consecutively. Since gpuowl 7 requires this and perhaps...

I went ahead and checked out M3321928171 from 91 to 92 bits. That way, we'll have a P-1 candidate ready to go. Similar to how I surmised, it is expected to take 75 days.

That sounds good. I think Stage 1 and Stage 2 should be checked out separately, but the user who completed Stage 1 will have preference to complete Stage 2, just like the user who completed the TF to...

Thanks to James, I was able to get mersenne.ca/obd to support reservations to 92 bits. Thus, the 3321928171 exponent is now available to that bit depth.



In this case, we should emphasize the...

It isn't reflecting on mersenne.ca yet, but I factored 3321928171 to 91 bits with no factor. Anyone with a Radeon VII Pro who is willing to crunch a P-1 and PRP test is good to go! :smile:

I would as well! I'm considering a dual boot into Arch Linux to use it on my 3060 Ti in the meantime.

That would be nice. I also have a 3060 Ti (MSI) but the window closes as soon as I open it. It worked fine on a GTX 1080.

Perhaps I should say fully factored...to the optimal 91 bit depth! :smile: A factor would at least avoid the arduous P-1 and PRP tests, but those will also be an interesting challenge.

I went ahead and took the liberty of reserving that exponent to 91 bits. It's a comparatively slow 100 days on my GTX 1080, but it will be good to have an exponent fully factored. I will check my...
