 2011-02-13, 19:41 #23 gd_barnes     May 2007 Kansas; USA 3×7×487 Posts For a majority of the sieve files, they will need to be sieved further. Obviously Chris's (Flatlander) files are an exception and there is 1-2 exceptions for bases < 32 that I have sieved to an optimal depth. Mathew sends me additional and updated sieve files from time to time by Email. He just sieves then to a specific limit (usually P=500G or 1T) and so likely will need more sieving. BTW, I said that n=50K-100K would take 3-4 times as long as n=25K-50K. That should be about 6 times as long. A doubleing of the n-value takes 4 times as long per test but the number of tests is twice as large so that's 8 times. Then you have to subtract the k's you've found primes for n=25K-50K. Hence ~6 times as long. Last fiddled with by gd_barnes on 2011-02-13 at 19:48

So I might do some more in a few months. (Thinks. Or get a water cooling kit and go faster. ) edit: Can GPUs sieve this stuff yet? Last fiddled with by Flatlander on 2011-02-13 at 20:02

No, unfortunately not. The algorithm that ppsieve/tpsieve uses for sieving on GPUs only works for base 2; to sieve other bases (and more specifically, handfuls of specific k's rather than huge swaths of k- and n-ranges which are ppsieve/tpsieve's specialty) you'd need an algorithm more akin to that used by sr2sieve, which is not as easily portable to a GPU. When I talked to ppsieve/tpsieve's author about this, he said that it probably could be done, but that he wasn't planning to do it himself any time soon.

I would like to knock off one or two more single k conjectures (of those that I have reserved). I have a list of 15 conjectures that are on my hit list that I would like to work on.

I did some further calculations regarding R51/R79. Way too much work. R79 would take close to 16 months with my resources and R51 would take close to two years.

My aforementioned list will be down to eight in a couple of weeks as R51 and R79 will be taken off of it.

I can't believe it has been two years since the last post in this thread.

R51 was completed to n=25K by Lennart and R79 was completed to n=25K by me.

I'm debating whether or not to complete a bunch of conjectures that are complete to n=2.5K or n=10K to n=25K or to take a bunch of single k conjectures to 200K or if I should tackle something else.

Yeah, right. I estimate that if I took all the 1 k conjectures to n=200K, that could be up to a year of work for me. Fortunately they all seem to be sieved, but I don't know if they are sieved deeply enough.

 2013-07-26, 14:10 #31 MyDogBuster     May 2008 Wilmington, DE 1011001001002 Posts There is really not that many 1kers left that are not tested to n=200K. I see about 45 in that category. Most of those sieve files were done by me and those are all sieved to 5T. Mark, on a Q6600, testing near 200K for a 1ker is around 2.5 hrs per test. I have only put a small dent in the 2kers. I plan on doing some of the 1ker's but at a slowed down pace. As for myself, I plan on taking the remaining bases =< 250 that are at 25K to at least 50K. Also the above mentioned 1kers. My S66 will be done shortly so I might start another large ck base to 10K. It's a challenge to keep it all straight, but the way I do it I only use 2 cores. Another candidate for the next Port 1400 project might be R25 and S25 (the k's not being tested by the Prime Grid SR5 project) to n=200K. I know its time to stop typing when I get a headache.

I have reached the 200,000. I have upped my stakes to 500,00, that will take me through 2015.
