/* NOTE: Custom kernel changes here You can either add a new kernel or I recommend just changing `cgbn_params_512`  typedef cgbn_params_t<4, 512> cgbn_params_512; + typedef cgbn_params_t<TPI_SEE_COMMENT_ABOVE, YOUR_BITS_HERE> cgbn_params_512; // My name is a lie The absolute limit is 32,768 bits. I found that GPU/CPU performance decreases 3x from 1,024 bits to 16,384 bits then an additional 2x above 16,384 still something like 13x faster on my system but possible no longer competitive watt for watt. Read the nearby comment for a sense of how long it will take to compile.

I spent most of today working on new optimal bounds. It can be a large speedup to use these instead of the traditionally optimal B1 bounds. ecm can confirm they represent a full t<X> while taking substantially less time when accounting for the GPU speedup.
Full table at https://github.com/sethtroisi/miscs..._gpu_optimizer and an excerpt below Code:

1. You might get 10% more throughput by toggling VERIFY_NORMALIZED to 0 on line 55 It's a nice debug check while this is still in development but it has never tripped so it's overly cautious especially if it costs 10% performance. 2. Would you mind sharing what card you have and the full output from v output (especially the lines that start with "GPU: ")

I'm seeing the new code be 3.1x faster which is similar to the 23x improvement I've seen on a 1080ti, 970, and K80. Code:
$ echo "(2^9971)"  ./ecm cgbn v sigma 3:1000 1000000 0 Computing 5120 Step 1 took 134ms of CPU time / 69031ms of GPU time Throughput: 74.170 curves per second (on average 13.48ms per Step 1) $ echo "(2^9971)"  ./ecm gpu v sigma 3:1000 1000000 0 Computing 5120 Step 1 took 10911ms of CPU time / 218643ms of GPU time Throughput: 23.417 curves per second (on average 42.70ms per Step 1)

Hello, I've got an error while trying to run curves with B1=11e7:
Code:
ecmcgbn: cgbn_stage1.cu:525: char* allocate_and_set_s_bits(const __mpz_struct*, int*): Assertion `1 <= num_bits && num_bits <= 100000000' failed.

It's to prevent GPU memory issues so it can be ignored (unless you run with a very huge number.
It's on my todo list to remove but I'm sadly without internet today. You can remove the assert and everything will be fine.

I just merged https://gitlab.inria.fr/zimmerma/ecm...ge_requests/27 which contains a fix of B1 limit along with a number of quality of life improvements: multiple kernels included by default (512 and 1024), estimated timing, better overflow detection, faster compilation.

I was playing around with CGBN today and I realized that it doesn't use fast squaring. in GMP fast squaring this yields a 1.5x speedup. I filed issue 19 asking the author what would be needed to add support for fast squaring.
I then discovered their paper ("Optimizing Modular Multiplication for NVIDIAâ€™s Maxwell GPUs") on the subject. It suggests that a more modest 2030% gain is likely. The main doubling loop contains 11 additions, 4 multiplications, 4 squares so this would likely only be a ~10% final gain but something we (READ: I) should try to track down.

BTW, the 54digit factor was found using Kaggle and ECM with CGBN support. 3584@43e6 took almost 3 hours for stage1 on Tesla P100.
