Just got a new Win7-running quad-core Intel laptop at work, downloaded v26.2 and started it off on 2 cores (see how the fan takes that for a few days).

I started it off on a partially-completed DC assignment ~25M, most interesting to me was this slightly cryptic note in the client diagnostic-echo display:

"using Core2 type-3 FFT length 1344K, Pass1=896, Pass2=1536"

So it looks like some kind of hybrid of previously-supported FFT lengths [896K = 7*2^17] and [1536K = 3*2^19] is being used to effect the equivalent of a single length [1344K = 3*7*2^15] transform. George, care to elaborate?

Um, 896 = 3*2^7, 1536=3*2^9 to effect a 1536K=7*3*2^16.

Oversimplifying:

25.11 supported a 5,6,7,or 8 reals first step followed by any number of 2 or 4 complex steps. This gave us 5,6,7,8 * any power of 2 FFT lengths.

26.2 has new building blocks for 3 and 5 complex values. These can appear (with some limitations for easy looping constructs and cache line padding) at any point in pass 1 or 2. The pass 1 sizes supported are 5,6,7,8 * 3,4,5 * a power of two. The pass 2 sizes supported are 3,4,5 * 3,4,5 * a power of two. Obviously this leads to many combinations and many new FFT lengths.

I have noticed this bug as well. It appears to occur when stage 2 restarts with lower memory settings, either from the day/night memory changeover or another worker entering stage 2.

I think you mean "896 = 7*2^7, 1536=3*2^9 to effect a 1344K=7*3*2^16". ... and now I understand my misunderstanding: I thought there was an implied "K" after those FFT lengths, and that you had found some funky way to combine 2 different-length FFTs bracketing the normal 1280K length needed for the exponent in question.

But you're referring to your usual 2-pass FFT, using length 896 * 1536. Got it.

That makes sense. I'll fix the optimal bounds calculations.

Default mersenne M45153469

I upgraded to 26.2 build 1 about halfway through M45153469. When it finished it downloaded a new number but never uploaded the results how do I get credit for it nowadays here is what was posted in my results file. [Mon Sep 27 22:20:59 2010]
M45153469 is not prime. Res64: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. We1: 7F42685C,27479492,00000000, AID: 00000000000000000000000002B0FCBD

Will some mod mask the residue, please?

You can go to the manual results submission page after logging into your account and submit the results there.
http://www.mersenne.org/manual_result/

Have you tried forcing Manual Communication? Advanced->Manual Communication->Contact Primenet now.

I see that garo edited it to mask it, but the last two (or more, or all) hexdigits should be masked, not the first twelve. That's how GIMPS hides them in the reports so that people can't fake it. If the last four are visible here, once it goes into the report, people can put it together to make the whole residue and submit it without doing any work.

thanks for the help i went to the manual results page and sent it up sorry for being so dumb, I can't believe people are so petty about increasing the score that the would steal other peoples work. I have been doing this for over 10 years and like to see my credit go up but only as a personal accomplishment of how I've given to this great community. I figure through the years its cost me several thousand dollars and before my injury 8 years ago i bought 4 duel 2.8 processor boxes, its funny that now my duel core laptop is twice as fast as running a number on both processors of the old boxes. I can't wait for the time when the amd 12cores come down in price i would love to put together a 48core box it would clear 16-24 numbers a month. Nice to dream.
