This morning 29.6b1 ran another benchmark. Notice the benchmark was for FFTlen=288K while the P1 was using a FFTlen=320K.
[/QUOTE]

Stopped and restarted Prime95 29.6b1 and now it is reporting a FFTlen=288K.

[CODE]8) Default memory available for prime95 changed from 8MB to 1/16th of RAM.[/CODE]

The 32-bit Windows 29.6b1 version is still defaulting to 8MB of memory. As you can see from my early posts that I've allocated 2GB of memory for Prime95 P-1 use.

[QUOTE=harlee;509323][CODE]8) Default memory available for prime95 changed from 8MB to 1/16th of RAM.[/CODE]

The 32-bit Windows 29.6b1 version is still defaulting to 8MB of memory.[/QUOTE]

[strike]That new default is for new installs on machines with more than 4GB of memory. If you are upgrading prime95 then the maximum amount of RAM is determined from the existing prime.txt.[/strike]

Edit: My bad, the new default is only for the blend torture test. I'm changing whatsnew.txt to reflect this. The options/cpu memory-to-use-for-P-1/ECM remains 8MB by default.

[QUOTE=harlee;509312]Found an issue with the Windows 32-bit version. Noticed that 29.6b1 is running much slower then 29.4b7. [/QUOTE]

I think I'll need gwnum.txt, prime.txt, local.txt and your CPU info to investigate.

[QUOTE=harlee;509316]Madpoo, Please look at [URL="https://www.mersenne.org/M18521411"]M18521411[/URL] as 29.6b1 found and reported a a factor but the P1 bounds are not being shown.

I don't remember ever showing the bounds for a "factor found" result in that history section. I could be wrong, but it's not ringing a bell. I'll double-check and if the old style non-JSON was doing it, I'll match that.

I was wrong... I just hadn't been including that info since the switch to the JSON result format. :smile:

Fixed now.

I am testing 32-bit Linux 29.6b1, and I have noticed that the program is unable to detect my CPU cache sizes.
[CODE]CPU Information:
Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processor 2.26GHz
CPU speed: 2260.72 MHz
CPU features: Prefetch, SSE, SSE2
L1 cache size: unknown, L2 cache size: unknown[/CODE]
I don't know if this is very important in the correct running of the program.

In 29.6 I switched to using hwloc to determine cache sizes. Apparently, that library has trouble with older architectures. I've fixed this in build 3 (prime95 falls back to old methods if hwloc cannot detect cache sizes).

Similar occurs in Windows 29.6b1 x32 on a Pentium M. Not an issue in 29.4b7 on the same system as it occurs in 29.6b1. Win XP affected, as is Vista; possibly later OS versions also. Not an issue in 29.6b1 x64 on Win 10 i7-8750H, or 29.6b1 x64 on Win 7 i3-370M, or Vista X64 prime95 v29.6b1 X64 on Core 2 Duo.

Build 3 is now available. This should fix the reported bugs. Please re-test (some of the reported bugs on older hardware I cannot test here).
