Prime numbers are natural numbers other than 1 that only divide by themselves and the number 1. There are a few mathematical methods to prove the primality of numbers and as of 2011, the largest of them and has approximately thirteen million digits.
The fact that the last world records where calculated within the GIMPS (Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search) network makes all of them Mersenne prime numbers (a positive integer equal to 1 less the power of 2).
Prime95 is the Windows version of the application serving as a client for the GIMPS project. Putting aside the prize and the money involved in finding a new Mersenne number, the application can also deliver a great environment for system stability tests.
Mathematics is the basis of a CPU and that is what they do all day long. Thus, Prime95 can prove to be the perfect tool for checking out both performance and steadiness.
