There are a couple of bases with no tasks waiting, but the fact that there is a couple probably means I am wrong.

EDIT: and they have very high N, so forget that idea.

Given that we're three mega-primes behind where we were last year, maybe we aren't so lucky. Unless we find three more mega primes in the next two days.

I am also enjoying how such a short and vague post has sparked an emphatic reaction.

Also, a misquoted Dirty Harry approves of this thread.

I assume that big prime is found :)
Only , does you feel lucky, or it just feeling :) ( and someone else is lucky)
I was lucky two days ago :)

Maybe this info has something with this thread :)

XGFN jobs pending 1
And that prime is not processed as usual, so it must be big one! ( base 2 , on plus side) if I am not wrong :)

Unbelievably, it looks like I sow this info at exact moment prime is going on XGFN verification :) so , it is not luck Mike is talking about: since his question is few hours old :)

App type: GPU only.

So either GFN15 or GFN22. I'm betting GFN22. Congrats to the finder if one was found!

OR: we didnt find anything, but instead we'll start solving GFN23 for b=20,000 to 44,720, since its right below GFN22 on the front page :P

It's definitely GFN, it's in the GFN graphs in the server info - task status.

I'ld say my best guess is either a GFN-23 or starting from a big enough "b" – a GFN-22-100M-prime search (or just a GFN-22-WR, but you would still need to start from a solid point, not just random "wherever the WR is at right now"). Like we have GFN-17Low and GFN-17Mega.

"Do You Feel Lucky?" subproject is also mentioned on the editing your settings page in context that it doesn't have CPU apps.

I think manual sieve will still give more credits. And in case it will be GFN23 project, GFN22 sieving results can be used for GFN23 for up to b=44,720.

Do You Feel Lucky?

In 2009, PrimeGrid started running GFN-15 and GFN-16 on PRPnet using Yves Gallot's Genefer program.

In 2010, GFN-18 and GFN-19 were also started on PRPNet. At that time, only one GFN-18 prime was known, and no GFN-19 primes were known. In February and March of 2011, PrimeGrid found the second and third known GFN-18 primes. Then, in October, we found the 4th known GFN-18 prime: 361658262144+1.

361658262144+1 is special: It's the first prime that we found using the new GeneferCUDA GPU program. The GPU version of Genefer was about 40 times faster than the CPU version, and represented a tremendous increase in computing power.

Right after that discovery, John challenged us to use GeneferCUDA to find a GFN-19. Nobody knew if a GFN-19 even existed. Certainly, none had ever been discovered.

"Why not?" said I. 4 days and just 16 tasks later, I discovered the world's first GFN-19 prime.

At that point I had been crunching at PrimeGrid for a bit less than two years. Somewhere during those two years I learned about GIMPS. Their Mersenne prime search had found all the largest primes. The primes found at PrimeGrid, as big as they were, were still much smaller than the Mersenne primes.

Seeing a chance to perhaps find primes as large as those found by GIMPS, I suggested that if we could make GeneferCUDA work on our BOINC server, where it would be more heavily utilized, we might start searching the GFN-22 range. All but the smallest potential GFN-22 primes would be larger than the then world record Mersenne prime, which was 12.9 million digits. Considering how fast GeneferCUDA was, we had a real shot at finding a world record prime. It was still a long shot, but there was a chance.

I offered to port Genefer and GeneferCUDA to be native BOINC programs, an idea to which the PrimeGrid admins were amenable. So I ported the programs and they made the necessary changes to PrimeGrid's servers. We started running GFN-18 on BOINC in January 2012, and started the world record prime search with GFN-22 in February 2012.

A year later, in February 2013, GFN-22 was searching numbers of about 16.5 million digits when GIMPS discovered a new world record Mersenne prime of 17.4 million digits.

Three years later they found a 22.3 million digit Mersenne prime.

Two years after that they found a 23.2 million digit Mersenne prime.

Eleven months later, in December of last year, they found a 24.8 million digit prime, which is the current largest known prime number.

GFN-22 is currently searching 21.6 million digit numbers.

It would appear that the opportunity to find a world record prime with GFN-22 has come and gone. Even though we have an excellent GPU program, Mersenne has the advantage of being inherently easier to search, and their numbers grow in size faster because their search increases n (size is proportional to n) whereas a GFN search increases b (size is proportional only to log(b)). In addition, they only need to search prime values of n whereas we need to search all even values of b. Even though we have a faster program, their search still progresses faster overall. We're behind, and they're pulling away.

After each of those 4 Mersenne discoveries, there were people here -- smart people -- who felt we should either increase b to be once again searching for a world record, or start an n=23 search, which would also be a world record search. The math, however, just doesn't make that a good bet. When we started GFN-22 it wasn't long before it was significantly larger than the current world record. We had some leeway. Starting a new world record search with larger numbers would have an even smaller chance of success. My uncle used to say, "Lotto is a tax on the mathematically challenged." I feel the same way about boosting GFN higher to be above GIMPS. It's not a good bet. They're more likely to find another prime before we find one of that size.

So after each Mersenne prime, we've thought about making another world record search, and each time, we decided not to do it.

Until now.

Let me start by saying this is a real long shot. It borders on stupidity. But a lot of people want to do it, and it's going to be fun.

We're starting up a new project called "Do You Feel Lucky?" It's going to be a GFN-22 search with b starting at 846,398. That's the first b not removed by sieving where b4194304+1 is greater than the current world record.

Like GFN-17, we'll now have two GFN-22 searches running concurrently. Unlike GFN-17, however, this new search will not be a contiguous search. If a new Mersenne prime is found, we will increase b again so that we continue to search for a world record. GFN-22 is sieved to b=100M, so we can continue doing this search up to about 33.5 million digits. If we have to search larger numbers, we'll either need to sieve GFN-22 above 100M, or sieve GFN-23.

"Lucky?" tasks will be slower than normal GFN-22 tasks because neither the OCL nor OCL4 transforms can be used. All GPUs should use OCL5.

CPU tasks will not be available. These tasks are beyond the range of the 64 bit CPU transforms, so the 80 bit x87 transform must be used. Not only is this about 10 times slower, but it can't use multi-threading like the AVX and FMA3 CPU transforms can. CPUs would take forever to run these tasks.

This project is a prime-finding project, so it will be available for TdP, or at least most of it. I'm not sure exactly when we'll turn it on.

The internal name is "genefer_extreme". That's what you would use in app_config.xml or app_info.xml. Should it ever be necessary, the next names would be genefer_ultimate, then genefer_ludicrous, then genefer_plaid.

I'd like to offer special thanks to two people.

The first is, of course, Yves Gallot, without whom none of this would be possible. Not only did Yves write the original Genefer program, but his subsequent Genefer OCL and improved CPU programs made it possible for us to expand the Genefer searches in ways that were previously impossible.

The second person is Robish, who is simply the luckiest GFN searcher on the planet. If anyone is going to find a GFN-22, it's going to be him. Yes, this is actually the reason we said yes this time. We're going to need a ridiculous amount of luck to find a world record prime, and Robish seems to have the market cornered.

No pressure, Rob. :)

Wow, just wow! I dont feel lucky (although I'm somewhat mathematically challenged), but my brain is telling to get a faster GPU asap...

On a side note, Michael, do you you mind if I quote your uncle's wise words elsewhere?

By all means you can quote it. It's a really good quote. :) If you want to attribute it (you do not have to), his name was Martin Metsch.

I'm in! Absolutely!

Is it unlikely?..... Yes. Is it impossible? Eh no. Mike proved that after only 16 units on gfn19.

If you're on the fence, just imagine the thrill of getting one!
Lotto ticket?, yes, but for the PG community, massive cudos and that's why we're all here I think. To contribute to the community that is PG. And hopefully break a few records on the way :)

I look forward to congratulating anyone who finds one :)

This is going to be fun.

I'd like to offer special thanks to three people.

The second person is Robish, who is simply the luckiest GFN searcher on the planet. If anyone is going to find a GFN-22, it's going to be him. Yes, this is actually the reason we said yes this time. We're going to need a ridiculous amount of luck to find a world record prime, and Robish seems to have the market cornered.

No pressure, Rob. :)

Rob, what are you waiting :)))
Go go go :)
Lets find that prime!

I found the GFN-19 in 16 tasks. Can he find the GFN-22 in 15 or fewer tasks?

Most probably not but sure it's worth a shot ;)

Do You Feel Lucky?

This project is a prime-finding project, so it will be available for TdP, or at least most of it. I'm not sure exactly when we'll turn it on.

The internal name is "genefer_extreme". That's what you would use in app_config.xml or app_info.xml. Should it ever be necessary, the next names would be genefer_ultimate, then genefer_ludicrous, then genefer_plaid.

Will it be added to the existing GFN badge or will there be a new badge created?

They say it's better to be lucky than good. But I think it's better to be good. Last year I felt lucky because I was good at aborting WUs a wingman had finished. But some people thought that was evil, not good, and put a stop to it.

So, no, I don't feel lucky this year. :(

However, if PrimeGrid comes up in either the Pentathlon or a Formula BOINC sprint this year, I want to be good again. So, which will get better points, this project with its 75% bonus or PPS Sieve?

I suppose it's PPS Sieve anyway, because I wouldn't be lucky enough to finish a WU with a wingman before whatever external challenge ended.

I'd like to offer special thanks to two people.

The first is, of course, Yves Gallot, without whom none of this would be possible. Not only did Yves write the original Genefer program, but his subsequent Genefer OCL and improved CPU programs made it possible for us to expand the Genefer searches in ways that were previously impossible.

The second person is Robish, who is simply the luckiest GFN searcher on the planet. If anyone is going to find a GFN-22, it's going to be him. Yes, this is actually the reason we said yes this time. We're going to need a ridiculous amount of luck to find a world record prime, and Robish seems to have the market cornered.

A big thanks to both Mike and Jim for setting this up. Going to be fun!

Fingers crossed :)

For GFN 21 - 22 and Ultimate 22, is it still required to have high DP computing power ? (HD 7950 / 7970 / Titan Black etc) or are GTX 10xx / RTX 20xx running faster ? Thank You.

The fastest cards will have big, modern DP like the Titan V or Tesla V100. Just behind them will be the RTX 20xx cards. The speed of the lower RTX cards (2070 and 2060) will be similar to just a bit faster than the GTX 1080 Ti and 1080, respectively. After that, it is a mix with GTX 10xx cards doing well.

From Michael's post above:

"Lucky?" tasks will be slower than normal GFN-22 tasks because neither the OCL nor OCL4 transforms can be used. All GPUs should use OCL5.

So DP is out, and a 2080ti might be on par with a Titan V (individual clocks and cooling would determine the difference).

Grebuloner's answer (right before mine) is correct: DP won't matter for Lucky, or Extreme, or whatever we end up calling it.

I understand these tasks will take a long time to crunch.
Any idea on how much longer than a "normal" GFN-22 ?
It's been a while since I last crunched a GFN-22 and it took around 75 hours on a GTX 1060 3GB.

I never said uncle Manny invented the quote himself!

But I'm pretty sure I heard it from him in the 70's or 80's, so at least that predates many (but certainly not all) of the documented prior versions of the quote.

Regardless of what version, or from whom it originated, I really like that quote.

Especially as I hand over money to buy Lotto tickets!

GFN-22 is sieved to b=100M, so we can continue doing this search up to about 33.5 million digits. If we have to search larger numbers, we'll either need to sieve GFN-22 above 100M, or

Apparently the Genefer software can go only to b=400M, or 36 million digits. So when/if the world record prime exceeds that size, GFN-23 would be required (assuming that Genefer still has the same limitation). /JeppeSN

My understanding is that's an arbitrary limit, and could be raised if we need to do it.

Thanks, I missed that. I also have removed the CPU stats from the three projects that don't have CPU tasks.

Eagerly waiting for some stats in relation to the average GPU elapsed time with these units.

The first tasks to be finished will be from RTX 2080 or 2080 Ti GPUs, so the first numbers you're going to see will probably "average" around 24 hours.

Now after Robish was that much hyped I looked at Robish's Badges... What the? TdP 2019 has just started yesterday and Robish ALREADY found a prime? Put him into the Lucky Project. 2 Tasks, world record prime done.

:) 3 luckys crunching away, fingers crossed :)

It doesn't.

And given that I haven't found a prime in a year, it seems to be the opposite.

I've got a GFN-22 running right now and I've set it to download Lucky for the next GPU task. Ill post 1080 Ti time here when its finished (probably early Monday?)

I have a Lucky wu running on my 1080Ti, it's using 98% of the gpu and 0.282% of a cpu core and estimates it will finish in 1 day 21+ hours after running just under 30 minutes.

Unless it spees up a bit, the estimated time here is around 4.5 days for the Extreme GFN-22 task.
This is a 2.5 year old Galax GTX 1060 3G (small overclock).
Running simultaneously, are 4 PPSE (single threaded = -t 1), averaging 12 minutes each task.
HT is on, computing preferences set at use at most 50% of the CPUs (in BOINC Manager).

You wouldn't have to mention it on WUProp because I believe PrimeGrid-apps are being intaken automatically there.
But not putting the new app in a news item was rather mean from my point of view because I follow almost every project with an RSS feed. ;-)

Well, I bet it won't work without having the system extremly lagging - if it works anyway. I remember I wanted to update my early 550Ti years ago with a modern CUDA version - wasn't even possible for an unknown reason...
I have one task running on a GTX 960 and it makes my host a bit sluggy. Cannot play without stopping the task and even doing other work is slighty hard, so I let it run for now.
At the current rate it will finish with a 7-day runtime - good that the deadline is long enough because at the end of this week I have to turn the host out for a few days.

I just started one of these tasks on a GTX1060 3gb, and it seems to have instantly used up an entire CPU core... anyone else seeing this, or is there a known commandline necessary to minimize CPU? (this is based on what boinctasks reports, I saw near 100% CPU on an 8-core processor, and saw the CPU usage of the PPSE tasks that were also running start to decline)

...I do feel lucky still.

True, but it takes a day or two for that, and I wanted to give you'all a head start.

That's coming. There's just been too many things on my plate between starting this project and TdP.

It will definitely work, but even my GTX 1060 is laggy.

I look at all of your three computer you have. All three have CPU with GPU.
So why you dont you use Intel GPU for video output, and GTX 550ti got GFN23?
In that case output will not be problem since GPU on CPU working nothing, just show image on your monitor. And on the oder side GTX 550ti will not do anything else then computing GFN 23 :)

Edit: i dont think , first tasks will give us more "luck" ... there is only hope))
i just want test performance my 2080Ti on this big tasks, witch was PG team introduced and its very good .. can help drag people to PG crunching.. Biggest prime is really amazing achievment for people ... but be carefull becouse on some GFN task we must wait years for it..)
As we see there is possible get about 80 000+ second per task on some hi clocked cpu and custom nvidia Gf.cards with max clocked from factory.

Good news: After one day, I have a wingman for my Lucky task. I won't have to wait forever for credit.

Bad news: Even though I had a 1 day head start, my wingman's probably going to finish 2 days before me.

1060 vs 2080 Ti :)

Almost no chance against those mighty GPUs.

A normal user wouldn't be able to see that information, right ?
If click for details on the current task I'm crunching, I get "tasks in progress suppressed pending completion".

Right. We had some issues last year that caused us to suppress certain information to maintain fairness for all.

I remember that.
I believe it was a decision made (taken?) during last year TdP.
Lots of interesting things happened then.
I learned not to assume, ha, ha, ha
Also the idea of putting (1st) in the task list was given by composite and you quickly implemented it.

There's an interesting benchmark here. How come a 2080 Ti with 420 FP64 flops complete the wu quicker than a Titan V with 7.450 FP64 flops?

Lucky doesn't use DP because B is beyond the OCL limit, which is approximately 610K for N=22.

Only the original OCL transform (and the similar and obsolete CUDA transform) use DP. All the other OCL transforms (OCL2, OCL3, OCL4, and OCL5) exist to circumvent the B limit when using DP.

There's now 38 completed tasks and 4 validated WUs. The 1070s now have had time to finish.

Fastest times for GPU types:

* I don't know why that 1070 Ti (it's a single result) was slower than a 1070.

That 1070ti is mine Michael, it's running with no O/C, maybe that's it or maybe it's the +40*C temps we've had in Oz????

Just checking the same 1070ti has 'recently' run some 'standard' GFN-22's with times ranging from 181,052 to 194,889 secs - do those sound like 'reasonable' numbers for that type of card (compared to others?)

If you have the time

Thanx

A GFN22 tak I ran on my 1070 Ti a while back took about 184,000 secs, so I guess so.

Well, these units are harsh on my 1080s, maxing out their fans, unlike the easier going units do.

And that means noise.

So I've ordered waterblocks for them. If I disappear suddenly, you'll know why.

I have mine backed off some because it's a laptop, the fan will wind up now & then but mostly it's fairly quiet ...

That surprises me a bit.
My GTX960 is taking my task more or less "lightly" and doesn't sound louder than usual.
While usage is at 100% of course, the fan is "only" at 70% with around 1800 rpm and temperature is around 70°C.
However, have to add that my comps case is opened by default. I guess it would be a bit higher if it was closed completely.

These units push the temps to 85c on them, and that maxes the fans out. On the less demanding units, the fan isn't audible effectively.

Wow, I'm surprised the driver lets it get that hot. The desktop Pascal GPUs seem to limit the temperature to a maximum of 82C.
