Worth mentioning that using balanced representation cancellation puts you squarely into the "works for average case, but not all cases" category. It is no longer 100% reliable because it's always...

I'll mention that ProtoNTT is just a prototype. y-cruncher's actual NTT is completely different implementation-wise. (and faster)

Computationally, FFTs are much faster than NTT, but NTT wins the...

50 Trillion Digits of Pi

So when Google set the record of 31.4 trillion digits last year, I gave it a 50/50 chance that record would fall before the end of the year.

Didn't quite work out that way. This latest computation...

I'm not familiar with the structure of an optimized mersenne-transform (due to its asymmetry). But if the FFT is out-of-place and you're expending bandwidth to save the integer...

Turn on XMP. Hardly any non-server memory is above "stock" 2133. Anything above it usually implies XMP.

Btw, my 7940X (ES) will do 3466 with a full load of 8 x 16GB.

Parallel Disk I/O

Not even close. You'd probably need 8 - 16 channels to keep LL from bottlenecking on 18-core Skylake X.

The high core count Skylake X's aren't a good value for LL for this reason. You're probably...

If you're not overclocking it, you can pop any large AIO on it and it'll stay quiet.

And if you intend to run LL on it, it'll be memory-bound anyways. So it won't be able to sustain a high power...

That's strange. I've also never seen things die on Linux without some sort of "killed" or "segfault" message. When it dies from OOM, it will (at least on out-of-the-box Ubuntu) will say killed.
