Folks, the polynomials will be more easily handled by original requestors/other testers if you'd insert the corresponding "n: ..." lines in them.

a swing and a flare for swellman C169 : I dug around and far above, nothing come remotly close

That's fantastic. The e score exceeds expectations, and GPU found it so fast.:smile: The speed is breathtaking.
I'll run test sieving tonight, and will start in earnest in a week or two once another job finishes. If anyone thinks it helpful, I'll post some details in the large GNFS advice thread. Many thanks to firejuggler and VBCurtis (and anyone else I missed) for the GPU poly effort. 
Please do post your parameters in the advice thread. A second day on your number found nothing. 4.11 is amazing!

Wow! Very well done! I too would be interested in your parameters. I'm still running the C176, but I haven't gotten any scores better than 1.28e13 (best is 1.32e13 with expected of at least 1.46e13).

Just wanted to note that with the latest SVN (922), the escore calculation has been revised, and the C176 now has an expected score of
[CODE]expecting poly E from 1.32e013 to > 1.51e013[/CODE] so Curtis, your best poly so far is actually now in the range. 
That is a good news. I didn't find anything better than VBCurtis so far. I'll withdraw from the C176 run if I find nothing in the next few hours.

The score* now should be as easy to achieve as it was before the r838 rational alpha correction. That is the idea (the units were corrected for that). In the interim versions (r838r920), one would try too hard to reach the invisible line.
___________ *The 'expected' score is just a guideline based on the work of thousands of invisible peers and the scores that they achieved before switching to sieving (that is for welltrodden gnfs sizes, and then this estimate is extrapolated over ranges where very few people went before). If minimizing the total gnfs project time was not the goal, one can find exceptional polys. (In a way, searching for gnfs polynomials could be compared to bitcoin mining: the longer you mine, the more value you may find.) For the GPUassisted binary, the invisible line is moved up as if the input number size was 'one digit shorter' (each decimal digit of the input size roughly corresponds to 1.15 times lower E value). 
Thanks for the explanation, Batalov.

:goodposting: 
I ran 160hr of GPU time on the c176, finding nothing better than I found the first 12 hr. I'll give it another day or two on previous runs, my experience is that one or two polys are well above the rest, while on this run I have had 1.32, 1.30, 1.29, 1.28 twice, etc.
