That's the best we can do; we will never get the efficiency of running entirely from L3 cache.

Just so there is no confusion, there is difference between dual rank and dual channel. If you run...

I am assuming that you were doing a single WU using all 8 cores.

5800X has a 32MB L3 cache. a 3200K FFT takes 3200*1024*8 bytes or 25MB. That will fit within the 32MB L3.

Clearly the 6M FFT,...

You should upgrade your client to version >= 30.4 (latest is 30.6), as those have improved (i.e. much faster) stage 2 and which will use all the memory you can throw at it.

Crunching on on-demand/reserved instances is cost prohibitive. But spot instances are much more affordable.

Noone is asking about using P+1 runs instead of P-1 runs to find P-1 factors. But, sometimes machines makes mistakes and P-1 runs could miss factors. If we're running P+1 anyways, and if it is...

I second this request. There is virtually no cost in throwing in a 'p' in the B1 product. If it helps in finding an odd P-1 factor here or there, that is always a win.

Well, someone's confused :wink:

c=-1 defines the number being factored (i.e. Mersenne) and not related to the method of factorization.

Incidentally, even the P-1 is kinda smooth-ish. A B1 of 60m (with a suitable sized B2) could have found it, but of course would've been a lot costlier.
