Okay, I know that, for instance 2^x is half as big as 2^(x+1), so 2^60 is half as big as 2^61 and 1/4th as big as 2^62. Unfortunately, Prime95 gives the amount of time to test one factor, but I have no way of knowing how many factors are in a range. Have I simply not managed to pick up on something that should be obvious?

The help file also mentions most get seived out leaving about 5 % to test.
