who knows Ryan Propper?
https://members.loria.fr/PZimmermann/records/top50.html
http://www.prothsearch.com/fermat.html I know his name from that two website , he find the factor of 7^337+1, 16559819925107279963180573885975861071762981898238616724384425798932514688349020287 I check it with sigma 3882127693,but it works very slow on my computer with one elliptic curve ,how long did he cost to get that factor ? my pc computer Windows 7 64bit ,what is his hardware ?

http://factordb.com/index.php?id=1100000000632146801 then click on green arrow next to "ECM" ... or here, then click on the link to order value of the curve, then you will find that with this sigma you can use B1 = 115e7 and B2 = 8e12. This will save you a lot of running time to confirm that this is the correct factor by ECM. Of course you can also check that it is indeed a factor much faster.

I'm quite sure he will not give you the address where his hardware is sitting.

Go here and rent a node. It will not be very different. x86_64 GNU/Linux, Xeon 8xxx CPU @ 3.00  3.40 GHz or similar. Maybe newer, maybe slightly older. It doesn't matter much.

Just like with a car, saying 'but I don't know how to drive it' (or 'I don't know how to use EC2') is unacceptable in 2020. Learn! Pick up a book, watch a YT video, take a coursera course.

The 83digit factor of 7^337 + 1 is listed as having been found seven years ago! It is possible the same hardware is still merrily crunching out results, but you might want to consider the possibility that the user may be using something different now.
Heck, for all I know, the hardware that found that factor barely finished the computation and output the result, before melting into a pool of slag which, after cooling off, became a piece of lawn sculpture. In that case, knowing where it is wouldn't do you much good.

I have one personal computer ,Windows 7 operating system ,but works slowly , so I want to know what kind of hardware helps Ryan Propper to get that 83digits factor Last fiddled with by bbb120 on 20201105 at 01:27

It takes about 2 hrs for the Stage 1 and another hour for Stage 2 (and not too much RAM) to reproduce this ECM hit.
As it was originally found, it was perhaps a 1215 CPUhour run, you know, 7 yrs ago, per curve  or in this case the lucky curve. Code:
