I'm not so optimistic anymore that a prime will turn up... Last fiddled with by bur on 2021-05-03 at 07:49
 2021-05-29, 07:06 #13 bur     Aug 2020 79*6581e-4;3*2539e-3 1101000012 Posts Things progressed much faster than I expected, the last batch 4,095e6 < n < 4,100e6 will be assigned to a core today and everything should be finished until June, 10th. If there will be no prime in these last few numbers, I'll continue by sieving the proth side to higher n and doing LLR on-the-fly depending on sieve/LLR times as LaurV suggested. According to prime95 I'll be able to continue single-threaded until an FFT size of 640k is reached which will be around n = 5.6e6, which agrees nicely with the 5.3 MB of L3 each core has. I just hope a prime will turn up before testing becomes really slow. I'm set on finding a mega prime for this k though. :D Last fiddled with by bur on 2021-05-29 at 07:08
 2021-06-11, 10:59 #14 bur     Aug 2020 79*6581e-4;3*2539e-3 3·139 Posts All n < 4,100,000 have been tested, no new primes other than the ones already posted. Currently I'm sieving in the range of 4,100,000 < n < 10,000,000. Smallest p-P range in progress: 87E12-107E12 Avg. time per factor: 810 s Largest p-P range in progress: 310E12-330E12 Avg. time per factor: 3160 s Remaining candidates: 100,936 / 5,900,000 (1.71%) Est. time per LLR test of smallest candidate: 5600 s (n = 4,100,014)
 2021-07-20, 17:31 #15 bur     Aug 2020 79*6581e-4;3*2539e-3 3×139 Posts Quick update, no new primes... All n < 4,300,000 have been tested. n < 10,000,000 sieved up to 570E12 (10,000 s / factor) Approximately 90,000 candidates remain. Largest LLR-test currently running: n = 4,450,000 FFT = 448k 6200 s / test Caldwell entry rank: 290 If the LLR-runtime would increase strictly quadratic, then it'll take to around n = 5,600,000 until an LLR test takes again as long as sieving to eliminate a candidate. As a very rough estimate that should take about 7 months on the 10 core. And when will the next prime appear? Judging from Primegrid's results on other prime k values it can be a looong time.

All n < 4,600,000 have been tested. Largest LLR-test currently running: n = 4,790,000 FFT = 512k 7500 s / test Caldwell entry rank: 274 Last fiddled with by bur on 2021-08-27 at 17:15
 2021-11-22, 16:32 #17 bur     Aug 2020 79*6581e-4;3*2539e-3 1A116 Posts Once again, a status update with no new prime: Sieving All n < 10,000,000 have been sieved to 800e12. Last reported time per factor: approx. 12,000 s 76,167 candidates (1.6%) are left in the range 5,250,000 < n < 10,000,000. LLR All n < 5,250,000 have been tested. Smallest LLR-test currently running: n = 5.25M FFT = 560k duration = 9975 s / test digits = 1.58M Caldwell entry rank: 254 Largest LLR-test currently running: n = 5.36e6 FFT = 560k duration = 10100 s / test digits = 1.61M Caldwell entry rank: 252

Where can srsieve2cl be obtained?

It is part of mtsieve and can be found here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/mtsieve/

Not to hijack this thread, but based on personal experience, I've had trouble getting my GeForce RTX 2060 to sieve faster with srsieve2cl than my Intel Core i7-10875H running 8 threads with sr1sieve. In fact, it's not even close with my Riesel data (at least 2-to-1 IIRC).
