Default Newpgen worthwhile for n*2^n+/-1 numbers?

PrimeGrid has finished their sieving and they only got up to about 2^33(a little under 8.6G).

I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to throw newpgen at these numbers? And, if, so, how high should I go? Also, I'm running Linux, and I've heard that newgen can be run commandline under Linux, is that true? I tried a number and it was banging along at about 10G every 1:30(m:s).
