On 30 August 2013, PrimeGrid’s PRPNet found the 2nd largest known Factorial prime:

147855!-1

The prime is 700,177 digits long and enters Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database ranked 2nd for Factorial primes and 191st overall.

The discovery was made by Pietari Snow (Lumiukko) of Finland using an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 940 @ 2.93GHz with 6 GB RAM running Linux. This computer took just a little over 69 hours and 37 minutes to complete the primality test using pfgw. Pietari is a member of the PrimeSearchTeam.

For more details, please see the official announcement.
