Default recent cleared list

Hi there,

I just sorted the "recent cleared list" by descending GHz-days 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?

Yes.

This was assigned as a Cat 4 to an unknown worker. Said worker worked it quickly.

224.2 days doesn't sound quickly to me.

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 FFT-size (a former version of Prime95 maybe, or a deliberate choice with a different program), thus giving the extra-yield. Just a guesstimate, however.

Hmmm... 224 days is the new quick? ;-P

Last fiddled with by ric on 2016-05-11 at 21:50 Reason: guesstimate about the reason why

Better than many (many!) years which some clients gleefully report...

OK. This has been covered before. But let's do this yet again...

The credits awarded for work is a function of the FFT size used.

Thanks for the clarification...

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

That result was run by a CPU running this version of Prime95, for some reason:
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
