Project description

NFS@Home is a research project that uses Internet-connected computers to do the lattice sieving step in the Number Field Sieve factorization of large integers. As a young school student, you gained your first experience at breaking an integer into prime factors, such as 15 = 3 * 5 or 35 = 5 * 7. NFS@Home is a continuation of that experience, only with integers that are hundreds of digits long. Most recent large factorizations have been done primarily by large clusters at universities. With NFS@Home you can participate in state-of-the-art factorizations simply by downloading and running a free program on your computer.

    New Windows x64 v5 app deployed

    Steve Searle has recently modified the lasieve v5 assembly code to work with Windows x64. Building on this, I have compiled and deployed a new Windows x64 lasievef v5 app. If you are using Windows x64, you may see these workunits running. Please let me know if you encounter problems.

    Credit badges added

    User and team badges for total credit since the beginning of the project and for individual app credits since I started tracking them a couple of days ago have been implemented. Details about the badge levels are at http://escatter11.fullerton.edu/nfs/forum_thread.php?id=457. Let's get sieving for the individual app badges!

    The Need For Speed Challenge

    The (N)eed (F)or (S)peed Challenge issued by SETI.USA team and will start from 2014-06-21 00:00 UTC to 2014-06-26 00:00 UTC. All teams are invited to join the challenge.

    Stats can be followed here: http://boincstats.com/en/stats/challenge/team/chat/557
    Don't forget that team leader should be register at boincstats so that the team can be added to the challenge.

    We hope to see all teams gathered to crunch some NFS@Home wu's and to increase their badge status.

    Best of luck!

    3,766+ factored

    3,766+ has been factored. It is the product of 66-digit, 75-digit, and 76-digit prime numbers. This is a new Cunningham project champion for GNFS. Let's now set a new record with 3,697+!
