The results are always as reliable as the hardware running the program.

Assignments must run to completion before a result is returned. How long that takes depends upon the hardware and the type of work. Factoring and P-1 assignments take hours or days. Doublechecking and First-time tests take weeks or months.

P-1 is factoring. Do you mean TF?

I think he means stress-testing, in which case I do not have an answer, but cheesehead might :)
