Irony for irony's sake, since Chris hasn't dared to engage in serious discussion.
With the notable exception of Aramis, Foetus Boy seems more up to speed on this topic than anyone except me, and it seems that includes George. You will understand this mildy mathy point though: From the point of view of the LL assignment seeker, a 69M exponent TFed to 74 will take 30% longer to test than a 60M exponent TFed to 73. Furthermore it will be (60/69)*(74/73) = 0.88 times as likely to be prime. That is what I meant by "unappetizing fare", and this cannot do anything but slow the assignment rate. Remember that maximizing this rate is the sole purpose of these heady bit levels and of this debate. D

However James' steps occur when the exponent increases by 2^{1/3}, and so do David's firepowerlimited steps. Now ain't that as cute as it is unsurprising? Quote:

Heck, even garo might agree with such a strategy.

Some people might like a formula for James' and my curves.
It is: bitlevel is proportional to (TF firepower/LL firepower) * exponent^{3} . END OF STORY. BTW do you think there are any GPUs out there which don't belong to GPUto72?

2. This work (read: LLing) needs to be done. 3. Over 50% of LL assignments won't get a single cycle done on it. 3.1. Over 80% of LL assignments will be "recycled" after it is abandoned. 4. Where, approximately (based on some hard math, please), is the next MP expected to be? In the 60s, or 70s? 5. We have the firepower to pull this (read: TFing to 74) off!

2. and LLers like to do it in ascending order. 3. No because they want a LOWER one. 4. Poisson. ~50% chance of it being <80M. 5. Read this thread you created. SEND HER TO THE GUILLOTINE

Actually, some of us want to do it in descending order, but we can't figure out how to count backwards from .
