Seit Mai 2011 rechnet mein Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2100T (SandyBridge) an den Primzahlen. Dieser löste den mittlerweile betagten Computer AMD Athlon(TM) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ ab und ich spare ca. 600kWh Strom im Jahr! Bis Januar 2007 rechnete ein Intel(R) Pentium(TM) II 450 MHz mit 2 Prozessoren. Insgesamt rechne ich beim GIMPS-Projekt seit Juni 1999 mit. Schliesslich bot die EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) ein Preisgeld von 100 000 US$ für denjenigen, der die erste Primzahl mit mehr als 10 Mio. Stellen berechnet.

Der Preis wurde an das Mathematics Department der University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) vergeben. Dort wurde in 2008 mit Hilfe der GIMPS-Software eine Primzahl mit mehr als 12 Millionen Stellen gefunden (siehe auch http://www.eff.org/press/archives/2009/10/14-0). Es sind neue Preise ausgeschrieben worden:

Privat erschwingliche Computer sind mittlerweile in dem Bereich der Rechenleistung, der nötig ist, um Zahlen mit etwa 10 Mio Stellen in verhältnismäßig kurzer Zeit testen zu können. Um eine solche Zahl zu testen, ob sie prim ist oder nicht, benötigt ein aktueller Prozessor mit 3GHz etwa 1,5 Monate Rechenzeit. Die heute üblichen Quad-Core, Hexa-Core, Octa-Core oder 12-Core CPUs verkürzen die Rechenzeit für einen Einzeltest nicht, aber man kann parallel mehrere Zahlen testen. Bis eine Primzahl mit mehr als 100 Mio Stellen gefunden wird, wird es sicher wieder mehr als 10 Jahre dauern.

Bevor ein Lucas-Lehmer-Test ausgefürt wird, wird zunächst geprüft, ob es Faktoren gibt, die kleiner als 2^68 sind. Manchmal werden welche gefunden, diese sind in der nachfolgenden Liste mit dabei.

Die folgenden 294 Exponenten haben meine Rechner bisher getestet (das M steht für Mersenne-Exponent): |
