3*2^n-1 Search Project News: Testing Status/Reservation News

We are upto 2.2 million bit tests. Thanks to everyone who helped get us here.

I have uploaded to the reservation page, http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=4301 , the latest blocks (2.2-2.35M) which have been sieved with NewPGen to 175 trillion.

The new batch is split into two sections. The first is for 32-bit Athlons (2200000-2244000) and the rest is for "SSE2" enabled computers such as Pentium4s and Athlon64s. The 32-bit Athlons last a little longer at the old FFT length.

You will notice it takes longer to do a test at the new FFT length. Hence, on a fast P4 it will take about five and half days to crunch a file of sixty candidates.

Good luck everyone
