Alright. In that case, I would like to work on 27.0. I think a prob of 5.6% should do the trick which means something like 600K / 400M should be sufficient. I might tweak the bounds once I start some...

I am coming up to the end of 5.9x fast (although it wouldn't look like it from stats). I need another range to start work on -- preferably a hard one. Is there a recommended / most wanted range?

Sure. I, in fact, use that setting in /both/ folders, and report them manually.


Gotcha.

Easily done. Run stage 1 only (B1=B2) in one folder, and stage 2 in another folder after copying over the save files.

Yes, with only 16GB available RAM, I understand that you can't give more. Unfortunately, you could've saved several days of computation if you had more RAM.

Do you have machines with more RAM? Like 32 GB or more? You'll be surprised (or not) at how much more speedup could be gained by using more RAM. For 2x.x, I would think something like 100+ GB will...

F12-F15 is probably less useful because GMP-ECM would also work. However, probably still worth a shot.

If there is sufficient RAM, it might even work with F29.

Not to the same extent as tiny ones, but more memory you throw at it, the better the gains. So, yes, those kind of very large RAM allocations will be useful.

If it is anything like GMP-ECM, it will eat up all the memory you can throw at it.

If you ran George's test cases with 20 GB instead of 6.5 GB, you should see another factor of sqrt(20/6.5)=1.7x...

I believe 30.4 was the first improvement.


IIUC, the more RAM you allocate (or more to the point, the more temps it can allocate), the greater the speed up ratio. So the 2x-6x seen in George's...

Few questions, in no particular order:
1) Why is 30.8 using larger FFTs on these two examples?
2) Is this using GMP-ECM-like stage 2 -- i.e. O(sqrt(B2)) [I think] given sufficient RAM?
3) "It...

Sure, I'm aware of this possibility. In this particular case, 3 == 394^59 (mod 1181), so we effectively did a proper P-1 using based 394.

I suspect that you haven't quite understood how P-1 works. P-1 only cares for the smoothness of the (unknown factor minus 1). It just so happens that, for mersenne primes, the (factor-1) has a...
