In case anyone wants to do some sleuthing, the server lists one "success" under the name Jon Pace.

Edit: my prediction is M77196191.

That looks a bit too close to be possible...

This GPU is available on AWS cloud as the p3.2xlarge instance type.

This loophole is now closed for future discoveries. I also erased Xolotl's 6 false successes.

In the future, I'll have to manually update the SQL table after prime verification is complete.

Just for giggles I looked up what it would cost me to run this on the Azure instance with 64 CPU cores (although I don't really know if those are physical or include HT cores, and how many sockets it's spread across). Best estimate though was it would cost me around $200-300 to test it out on that. LOL No thanks.

I haven't looked at the Azure GPU instances to see how they're priced but I'd guess it'd be somewhat similar to run a beefy system for a day or two.

Sheesh, that's steep. If one divined that this time this is a 'real one', then perhaps it would have been worth it. But not for ~10 false discoveries per year.

Last time I only spent donated 2 x $20 for the two M49 verification runs with Mlucas (with different FFT sizes).

Does this new discovery (assuming confirmed), reduce by any amount the chance of finding another prime in the vicinity?

Impossible to say... I'm reminded of the (probably) 46th and 47th Mersenne primes that are within spitting distance of each other, for example.

No, not that this is proven.
