The List of Largest Known Primes
The list of 5000 largest known primes will always be available here. You can view it and search it here!

- The whole list as a printable text file! This is a large file: 407.69 KB.
- The whole list (all.txt) zipped, so it is roughly one fourth the size of all.txt: 115.1 KB.
- All of the primes with 800,000 digits or more, plus the 'interesting' smaller primes (that is, those with comments on the list). So this is a much smaller file: 342.5 KB.
You might also consider one of the summary pages (these are automatically updated when new primes are accepted onto the list!)
- The Top Twenty
- The Top Twenty lists is a series of pages each dedicated to listing the top twenty primes of certain selected forms.
- The Largest Known Primes
- This is a single page which summarizes much of the information in the pages about the 5000 largest known primes from introduction through list of the top ten primes of a few selected forms.
