Nope  no computer access for a while. I won't have much time until the weekend to do jobs much larger than C85.

Msieve is cranking away on the C92 even as we speak! ETA: 2 hours.

Maybe comparing yield over a certain range is a more portable way of measuring the poly quality?

I'm not suggesting it should be used for anything serious... It just seemed a possibly better idea for them than comparing the sec/rel with different processors.

And... (I'm not at home, so I won't be able to do much work on the next iteraton(s))

Anyway, the difference between the two CPUs (3GHz Q6600 (4MB L2) vs 2.2GHz E4500 (1MB L2)) is enough to explain the bulk of the discrepancy. For proper comparison of two polys, the SOP is to trial sieve at different qvalues with the same set of parameters, and look at the sieve speed (which is IMO, better than yield count) for the _same_ processor. EDIT: The discussion is getting pretty offtopic. So... Last fiddled with by axn on 20090324 at 12:52 Reason: offtopic

Ah, what horrible bad luck for me to be running windows then... As usual, inline asm seems to be the culprit.
