Apparently these new Titan V cards may glitch when doing scientific calculations. Early adopters beware...

Thank you for the explanation Michael. I'm still learning the ropes as I only just started to seriously look for primes since the TdP. And thanks for the congrats on the "special pair of GFN primes!". Have a great weekend!
13) Message boards : General discussion : Question Concerning Prime Reporting Emails (Message 116110)

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if it's normal to receive an email reporting that I found a prime "before" my wing man has even validated the results, in one case two days before validation.

This has happened to me on two occasions while recently crunching GFN-15 primes. I know that because they are too small to report to the T5K they are visible immediately, but I would have thought that validation from the wing man would at least be required before being emailed and having it posted on the front page.

Is this the case for all prime finds? Or do larger primes like PPSE and up (those that can be reported to T5K) require validation from a wing man before an email is sent?

I'm the DC, thanks for letting me know JimB. Oh well, congrats to the finder! At least I also made the "Hard Luck Edition".

Simple question. I have only found 2 primes since joining PrimeGrid and never "yet" been a double checker. My found PPSE primes list just climbed by 1 but, it does not indicate if I was a DC'er or the finder. So I am wondering, will the found primes list will climb even if I am the DC'er? or only if "I" found the prime?

Indeed, this GPU shortage has definitely driven up the prices of video cards. The two GTX 1080 EVGA video cards in my main rig were purchased for $739.00 CAD each back in November last year. Now the same model card goes for $1079.00 at the same store (Canada Computers). That card is now out of stock chain wide. My GTX 1060 6G was purchased for $389.99 CAD back in October, it now retails for $649.00 at Canada Computers and is nearly sold out. The store even changed video card purchase policy allowing only one card per household per day due to shortages. Coincidentally the 850 watt EVGA power supply I bought in December has gone up in price by $50 and is also out of stock.

It happened to me, twice, in less than a day! First two and only primes I have ever found. I have been mostly a "sieve" person here on Prime Grid since joining and never thought I would have been lucky enough to find a prime during TdP. I wanted to level up my badges and figured I may as well do it during TdP. It shows that luck plays a role as I only decided to start running GFN-16 seriously after finding my first PPSE on Feb 11th (beat my wing man by 5 minutes) and then bingo a GFN-16 less than a day later.
