When I read George's OP his wording led me to understand that the prime-reporting run was done using CuLu ... but Aaron, you say it was in fact a Prime95 (or mprime) run?

@Serge: I don't recall if Gord Palameta (a.k.a. GP2) did timings for 16-or-more-core C5 instances, and if so, how those compared to the EC2-instance timings you got for your verify run of the last prime 2 years ago. I'll try to dig up some numbers tomorrow.
