2/1 - 2/28 - PrimeGrid - Tour De Primes - -

This is NOT part of the 2017 challenge series. However it is possible to earn a special badge based on your results.

The agenda is multi-factored. They are looking for the person with the best found prime and they are looking for the person that finds the most primes. Last year PPSE and SGS were the easiest project to find Primes in but wasn't as likely to find the highest prime. Currently, the fastest opportunities to find Top 5000 primes is with the SGS (LLR), PPSE (LLR), and GFN-16 (65536) projects.

Also, keep in mind this is a CPU/GPU event. So, run both to increase your possibility of getting Primes. Double Precision capable GPU's are mandatory, so don't run extremely old GPU's.
