How can you compare a factor found in lets say the 900M range with one in the LL range? Finding a factor in the 900M range is much easier and saves hundreds if not even thousands times the GHzdays if we finally get there in 100 years.

Well, a 70 bit factor for a 900M is about equal (iirc) to a 66 bit factor for 56M. TF credit (should? does?) reflect this, but the simple truth is it does save so much time iff these exponents are ever LL tested. I picture it like this: a composite exponent also could have a "GHz saved" amount if anyone was stupid enough to run it without the known factor, but not stupid enough to run it with a known factor.

You need some kind of selfbalancing metric, perhaps something along the lines of
Code:
worth = GHd_saved * (GHd_factor / GHd_LL) // examples: // 72bit TF factor on 60M (TF to 2^{73}) value = (133.292 + 133.292 + 15.94) * (11.956 / 133.292) = 89.7 // 72bit TF factor on 900M (TF to 2^{84}) value = (24825 + 24825 + 4352) * (0.5314 / 24825) = 1.2 // 83bit TF factor on 900M (TF to 2^{84}) value = (24825 + 24825 + 2176) * (1088 / 24825) = 2271 // 93bit P1 factor on 900M (TF to 2^{84}) value = (24825 + 24825 + 0) * (684 / 24825) = 1368

LL trial factoring work (/reports/workers/lltf/)? The graphs appear to be updated, but the table is outdated. And it doesn't appear to be a cache problem at my end. Gareth

mfaktc v0.20's recent release brings GPUsieving into the game. And much increased performance (in the order of 3050%). TF levels for GPU72 may need to be reconsidered?

Starting at about 57M, I'd say that's true.
According to my chart: 46M56M = 2^{73} 57M72M = 2^{74} 73M90?M = 2^{75} Last fiddled with by James Heinrich on 20130108 at 23:45 Reason: can't count
