Default TF is a waste of a good cpu (except...)

How many TF GhzD/day can the cpu in question provide? A good gpu can do 1000 to 3000, 24/7. (GTX1080, 1650 are ~1000; RTX2080 Super ~3300. The best use of a cpu core for TF is to keep a good gpu well fed, or several. https://www.mersenne.ca/mfaktc.php https://www.mersenne.ca/throughput.p...2288&mhz2=2700)

I'll occasionally run cpu TF, but only for test purposes, or the very rare foray into very high exponents that available gpu software like mfaktx can't handle.
