On 16 January 2017, 04:34:40 UTC, PrimeGrid’s PPS Mega Prime Search project found the Mega Prime:

543*2^3351686+1

The prime is 1,008,961 digits long and will enter Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database ranked 201st overall.

The discovery was made by Simon Rawles (rawles) of the United Kingdom using an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-5960X CPU @ 3.00GHz with 32GB RAM, running Linux. This computer took about 56 minutes to complete the primality test using LLR.

The prime was verified on 16 January 2017, 05:06:22 UTC by Ed Goforth (BlisteringSheep) of Saint Kitts and Nevis using an Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2620 v3 @ 2.40GHz with 64GB RAM, running Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2. This computer took about 1 hour 35 minutes to complete the primality test using LLR. Ed is a member of the Christians team.

For more details, please see the official announcement.
