The P1 factoring CUDA program
6 GB of nonshared memory mean decent P1 power, right?

to **** with it. i'll try something, but it will be unclever, slow, and useless at first.

I have the second, but I'm afraid I can reach a decent efficiency using montgomery multiplication... What I need is how to apply the FFT multiplication routines to the code. Yes, I'm dreaming about coding something myself... Firejuggler, if you like you may share your ideas with us. We could open a dedicated thread on how to design a GPUenabled P1 program (and invite people with experience...). What do you think? Luigi

please note : I have a lot of free time, and a less than average programming capacity...
the important part being lot of free time. Last fiddled with by firejuggler on 20130220 at 19:43

Using CUDALucas' FFT/mul code would be a good place to start. I believe there is also other work being done on this particular front of the GPU P1 issue.

Nope.
I did just double check that I was remembering correctly, and I was. One more knowledgeable than I in such largenumber arithmetic on GPUs has "been thinking about p1 on gpus". I don't know if that's going anywhere though.

Plans for a P1 factoring CUDA program
I've been thinking about a CUDA program for P1 factoring for quite a bit, and think that many other Mersennaries had.
First of all, note that I have only a limited knowledge about the math involved, but I'm willing to expand this limitation studying under the guide of more informed people, and eventually start coding something with the ir help. I'd like to gather ideas about how such a program should be designed. Some questions will be trivial, some other maybe deeper, but all of them will be enclosed in this thread. Some naif subjects to talk about:  Parallelization of tasks  Limitations due to the memory factor of the GPU (how far may we go having 0.5, 1, 2,3 or 6GB of memory?  Limitations of the GPU shared memory.  Description of steps 1 and 2 (from MersenneWiki I got a grasp of it, but a talk would explain more).  use of streams to pass chunks of bytes to analyze.  How to apply CuFFT library to the algorithm.  Is a parallel Montgomery multiplication algorithm out of question for such algorithm? I hope it may help both people in need for a CUDA P1 program, programmers, mathematicians. Luigi
