GMPECM vs mprime for F12?
I've been playing a bit with GMPECM vs. mprime for the remaining C1133 of F12.
It seems mprime's ECM mode is way faster (3 hours vs. 6+) on my Xeon. Why is this? Does it have some particular optimizations for Fermat numbers, the use of gwnum, something else?

Yes, mprime uses the faster gwnum library vs. GMP for GMPECM.
However, GMPECM uses a superior algorithm for stage 2. So, the optimal solution is to use mprime for stage 1 and GMPECM for stage 2. Dig around in the forums for instructions on how to do this. Good luck in your search

It seems like compiling GMPECM with the withgwnum configuration option seems to (roughly) do the trick?

Cool.
Can you test it to find known factors of F12? Maybe Xyzzy can dig up the sigma and bounds for his discovered factor.

If this build finds known factors, I'm going to be finding some mersenne factors with it!
I wish you success, mathwiz.

Here is the sigma from the F14 factor:
https://mersenneforum.org/showpost.p...9&postcount=18 So you can test with: ecm.exe sigma 8585974330888598 110e6 110e8 < f14.txt where f14.txt is just "2^16384+1"

After you've completed a QA run, be aware that stage 1 (I can't comment on stage 2) is not multithreaded. On a multicore machine you'll want to be running several instances during stage 1.
Stage 2 where access to memory is critical you'll probably only want one instance running  check with GMPECMers to see if this advice is accurate.

Interestingly, GMPECM only seems to use gwnum_ecmStage1() if the input is written out explicitly in (2^n +/ 1)/d form, as opposed to a full decimal. E.g.:
Code:
