Fact or Friction
mfaktc: It would appear that the larger number of manual assignments a person gets, the larger the end factor tends to be. I take 10, it is 72. I take 15 it is 73. This 1080 goes through them rather rapidly. So, what happens if I take 50, or more?

GPU72 work tends to be slow, so I think I've only had in the range of 10k assignments there. Using the manual GPU assignment page I've had over 100k assignments.

It works fine for me and you can set the bit level and the exponent range and whether you get from GIMPS or GPU72. I took 2,000 assignments before I went on vacation.

While you wouldn't find as many factors per temporal period, this work is of more immediate need to GIMPS; 181M probably won't be LL'ed for another decade or so. Work is also available in the 92M range to 72 bits; ~5.2 GHzD per run. At least this effort will be utilized in a couple of years. Entirely up to you, of course. It's your kit!

No, but I have seen the name here and there.

I looked at the link. Very interesting. I plan to look at this in detail.

I did a cross check on mersenne.org. These particular exponents, no attention since 2015. I found that rather astonishing.
