So it looks as though the new prime has brought in a considerable amount of new computing power (thanks and welcome to the new users!). The 30day sustained GIMPS throughput has swollen to a record 380 TFLOP/s, with the theoretical 30day maximum throughput exploding to 1.25 PFLOP/s. This is the first time that the GIMPS distributed supercomputer has (theoretically) breached the petaflop barrier.
For historical perspective, in November 2005, GIMPS was knocking on the door of 20 TFLOP/s. We now produce nineteen times that: what constituted GIMPS' typical 24hour throughput a decade ago, is now completed every 76 minutes. It is worth noting that the actual 30day throughput has been typically 3540% of the theoretical maximum. Therefore, as the new users continue to complete assignments, I expect that we should sustain 450500+ TFLOP/s in the next few weeks.

GIMPS has set yet another new record for 30day sustained computing throughput: 405+ TFLOP/s, beating the old record of 400+ TFLOP/s set on 20160219 in the wake of the discovery of the 49th Mersenne prime and the associated influx of new users and computing power.
The maximum theoretical 30day sustained throughput record remains 1,201+ TFLOP/s, also set on 20160219. The present value of this metric is 1,037+ TFLOP/s, which still places GIMPS in the impressive realm of petafloplevel computing power, while showing a 17.4% increase in computing efficiency from 33.3% to 39.1% overall, in just shy of one year.

There has been discussion on whether/how much to cap GHzday credit to prevent crazy things like that.

This is getting as bad (as good?) as the US stock market.
New record: 431.005 TFLOP/s.

New record for 30day sustained throughput: 436.648 TFLOP/s. The postM50 crowd seems to be hanging around a little longer than those joining on after previous prime discoveries.
