*The primality proof took twelve days of non-stop computing on a machine with an Intel i5-4590T CPU. To prove there were no errors in the prime discovery process, the new prime was independently verified using three different programs on three different hardware configurations. Andreas Hoglund verified the prime using CUDALucas running on a NVidia V100 GPU in 21 hours. Andreas Hoglund also verified the prime using Mlucas running on 16 cores of an Amazon AWS instance in 72 hours. Aaron Blosser also verified it using Prime95 on an Intel 7700K processor in 6 days, 8 hours.*
