Amazing how random things are. I found 5 in the first 2 weeks then nothing for the next 2 weeks.
Maybe I got in early before more users showed up with RTX gear. Who knows.
Perhaps if I had of stuck with GFN-16 & PPSE the whole way (although I have my doubts about PPSE success) things might have been different.

Oh well....it's been enjoyable. Thanks Michael & others for your tireless efforts with Primegrid.

I don't have the answer but I have Vega 56 GPU's. I'm happy to run a few GFN 21 tasks after TdP if it helps solve your issue.

Lets see what others come up with first.

I’m thinking the same. I’ll need to do some testing but I think 2 * 8 will be the go. 4*4 will work but I’m still looking for a few 1st and I don’t think I’ll get many with 4*4.
You suffer the same fate as me... thermal throttling at 68 degrees. My system never stays below 67.

I don't believe anyone is harming the process nor are they slowing progress down. In my opinion, this current TdP is actually doing more work than any other. I don't have the numbers to back that up and it's just my opinion.


I'd agree.
It's been some time since I crunched PG but I love this challenge so turned up for it. Now that I have also mastered the setup (thanks to the patience of some PG members) it has reignited my interest in PrimeGrid.

I admit, it's not much fun being up against all the NVIDIA hardware but.... I guess I'm coping with that as I'm still here :D
I get my enjoyment out of watching the big boys with their toys jostle to top spot. I'm just a passenger.

Goodluck!

The only hope of winning a jersey would be to pull a rabbit out of the hat with a GFN18 or above. Highly unlikely.


Still worth a try, I'd say. The red jersey is highly random -- whoever returns the largest prime first. A larger one could show up at any time.

The polkadot jersey on the 29th will also be a pretty random thing -- even with lots of computing power, finding even one prime on a given day is no sure thing.

Alternatively, run PPS-MEGA and GFN-17 Mega on the 29th and try for the badge -- I suspect that's tougher than the polkadot jersey.

Wow.... it’s as if the primes are hiding! Pretty quiet.
Looks like there’s quite a few people going for the bigger primes.
