I'm gunning for a top-59 finish in this Challenge personally; we'll see if I can rise up the ranks fast enough. Not going to be easy.

I put another Haswell quad (i5-4670), 16GB of DDR3-1600, and a GTX 1650 D5 4GB on PrimeGrid. Crossing my fingers that I don't trip a breaker.

Didn't know that you could "bunker" PrimeGrid. Unless, the point is to sand-bag at the beginning.

Well, congrats to TSBT. I feel a small personal victory over them, though, as I came in 58th individually, just beating out two of their members, @ 59th and @ 60th respectively. It was close, for me at least.

Nice Larry:) i didn't know you had that many computers.
The "little" ones (quads), are the Fortnite-capable gaming PCs from my FS thread here, with GTX 1650 and 1050 cards. My "big" PCs are 3x 6C/12T Ryzen + GTX 1660 ti. And a mining rig with 3x GTX 1660 ti.

The next PG challenge will be the Summer LOLympics challenge ;-) for a whole week, during July 24–31.

It's going to be at TRP-LLR, which was previously used in a PG challenge in May 2019 and October 2017 for example. Neither my older PG CPU benchmarks thread nor my more recent locally stored testing protocols contain data on TRP. But I found notes which I left in my app_config.xml's in May 2019. At that time, FFTs with 5.6...7.5 MB memory footprint were in circulation.

According to Tony's calendar, there will be just a few days of spare time available for performance testing before the challenge. Personally, I won't need to test my Xeons, but I should test my newer toys.
