I have a question along the same lines. Roughly since upgrading to version 26.3 from 26.2, I've been getting about .5GHZ days less on P-1 tests in the same exponent range with the same B1/B2...

Peanuts in terms of impact to a system, or peanuts in terms of likelihood of finding a factor? The extra 50MB of memory is only going to marginally increase the chances of finding a factor, but...

I haven't touched the memory settings since I first installed it, and daytime/nighttime memory settings are the same. It is possible that stage 2 was stopped at some point both times I noticed it...

A few minutes was a conservative lower bound because that was as far back as I could check in my terminal =P. I think it might start outputting 100% when stage 2 starts working with the last set of...

Well right now I have 2 workers out of 4 running P-1 stage 2 on an i5 with global memory settings of 2056 MB, and each one is only using 988MB of memory. Generally, I think the program will say "x...

Actually, I'd suggest putting it a little bit higher than that. Since the memory limit you input is for the entire instance of Prime95, even if only one core is doing P-1 stage 2, if the other core...

In the 64-bit Linux version, there appears to be something wrong with the calculation for percentage completed during P-1 stage 2. My tests have been outputting saying they are 100% complete for at...

Option for lifetime stats instead of past year?

Would it be possible to add a setting for an account where the stats would, by default, display lifetime stats instead of just those accumulated over the past year? I'll probably just bookmark the...

Done with this thread, and I guess the whole forum for a while. No point in taking an active interest in the project if I'm just going to get shouted down.
