recent cleared list
Hi there,
I just sorted the "recent cleared list" by descending GHzdays and one would expect to also have a descending order in the exponent column for the LL results but at the moment exponent 78358727 seems to be out of line for some reason. Any explanation for this?

I guess the OP is asking "given that similar exponents in the 78M2 range earn about 240 GHz/days each, and exponents in the 84M7 range earn about 270 GHz/days, how is it that a candidate in 78M3 earns 280+ GHz/days?"
Pls correct me if this ain't the right question. No idea how or why this happened, though. EDIT: the only legit reason coming to my mind was that the candidate was checked with a larger FFTsize (a former version of Prime95 maybe, or a deliberate choice with a different program), thus giving the extrayield. Just a guesstimate, however. Hmmm... 224 days is the new quick? ;P Last fiddled with by ric on 20160511 at 21:50 Reason: guesstimate about the reason why

Thanks for the clarification...
Must have missed that post, sorry for asking a faq.

Windows64,Prime95,v25.11,build 2 That is a pretty old version... so maybe that solves this mystery? It used a much larger FFT size than it would have with a newer version. FYI, the CPU that did it reports itself as: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5504 @ 2.00GHz
