I think your question means you don't understand ECM well. If an ECM curve would find a factor, increased bounds with the same sigma would also find the factor.

578M raw relations got me 391M uniques, and a 39.98M matrix at TD=84.

There was a deficit of 27M in relations vs ideals in the first step of filtering, so I'm continuing to sieve. I think 610M or...
