Sieve work is suspended for 1M-6M because they're done with the sieve work. It is suspended for 10-12M merely because they're not actively working there; the computation cycles are focused on 6-9M...

Jim does us a favor by posting the link; if you think a k<300 file is a good plan, how about posting it for us (at least the first time)?

Also, Q is ambiguous- do you mean quadrillion or quintillion? Metric prefixes lack this ambiguity.

Well folks, there you go. If they consider just the proth side for "optimal", since the riesel side is not their interest, optimal is around 700P.

Wow.

Lennart-
Do you know what the limits of the software are? Max p-value? If a 3M range is much more efficient than 2M, would a 4M or 5M range be yet more efficient?

Since 6-9M has barely started,...

Time for some estimating-out-loud:
a 9G range takes 20 minutes on this 480GTX. That's 27G/hr, or 600G/day.

According to Lennart's sieve-data post, each 1P sieved removes about 12,000 candidates...

Lennart-
Those numbers look pretty consistent for candidates removed per 1P sieved, mostly ruling out an error- though, as happened previously, it's possible there are errors in k=5.

Since I like...

Carlos-
If I read this correctly, you're saying the file has no difference all the way from 3000 to 3950? That sounds like a pretty big error in the sieve process. Or do you mean that just 3910 to...
