That was my first test Take a look at the file attatched. 437 candidates from 15M
Speeds: ppsieve: GTX570  225M p/sec with 2 clients running (75% load) sr2sieve: slow laptop cpu  26M p/sec 1 client running

I think this will be useful to avoid some PRP tests.
I think ppsieve can be made faster since the PSP k's are low weight and we can add SPH to it also. What do you guys think? Last fiddled with by Citrix on 20130713 at 18:37

I thought PPsieve was only efficient for big k ranges (like PPS on PG)?
Something to consider though, a GPU uses 100Watt or more while sieving. A SB/IV bridge/ Haswell also uses something like 100Watt. Those CPUs can complete 4 first pass tests <2 days. For the PPsieve to be efficient in terms of eliminated factors/used power the GPU has to eliminate at least 2 candidates <2 days (and thus save 2 FP tests and 2 DC tests).

As an info. I had to fight with my migraine this weekend.
Its much better now but I want to take it easy. So all the things I had promised for this weekend have to be moved a little bit. Sorry for the delay.

FYI: I did some theoretical testing... if we use the SPH algorithm and only test a range of 500K (n's) (e.g. 1515.5 M) and only test 33% of all the primes in a range, we can be as fast or may be even faster than sr2sieve (in terms of rate of factors found; when comparing to sieving a 50M dat). This will definitely save some PRP tests. If some one is good at programming I am willing to help them implement SPH for PSP. It can be done both on GPU or CPU.

I finally was able to get access to a GPU. Does anyone have a copy of ppsieve CUDA for windows to play with?

Is the PSP's stats website down? Could some one else confirm. I am having issues getting the webpage to load.
