well we know if p and 2p+1 are both primes of form 4x+3 then 2p+1 divides Mp so that's a slight skew in the mod 12 version (potentially has an affect on primes of form 11 mod 12 as that's the intersection of primes of form 4x+3 and 6y+5 that are both required, so that 2p+1 could also be prime). not sure of any other rules and their effects.

So your counsel is?

I'll let you know here soon.... I think the biggest I had was a 22 core.



But I'd rather be testing some EPYC (2?) setups.

Question

There was a suggestion circled around to split all the Conjecture talk in a separate thread.
(And perhaps "the size of the kit" comparisons in the other. )

It all depends on the frame of reference and the context... We have a lot of trouble with mirrored frames of reference, for example.

Yes, that's a good idea.

It's only here because masser gave binary-based histogram bins for Mersenne primes, which led me to post about hexadecimal bins and hexadecimal final digits, and one thing led to another.

If one fails, it does not necessarily mean the existing codes are flawed, it could be a transient hardware issue.There's a sliver of a chance of an error occurring outside the loop of iterations that are guarded for accuracy by the Gerbicz check.
No disrespect to any of the authors (or users, or hardware designers for that matter; some tasks are just very hard). I've fixed code that failed nonreproducibly at low rates. Ppb or lower frequency bugs can be hard to determine exist, much less identify and resolve. Current assignments can be of order 1018 core clocks to complete.
The random rotation means that FFT operates on completely different bit patterns for first time vs dc runs. Hence, if a DC run matches with same final residue, this is as good as 100% as we can humanly make.
