That's my point: They have all been done months before, and if we still focus on these "recommended" bounds, we might have nothing to do (TF at the PRP wavefront) in the future.

It's about 0.04/(2/78) = 1.56 times higher. However, with TF done to 2^78, one need smaller P-1 bounds to reach desired probability, thus...

Nowadays people mainly do trial factoring in the two-k project (which I have very little interest), and GPU72 is releasing TF assignments to 2^76 and seems very reluctant to give any higher bounds....

I'll finish them by tonight. Are there other exponents with higher TF done but intermediate levels missing in the 100-120M range?

RX 6900 XT or Radeon 7 or other recent AMD Radeon cards can complete a PRP in less than two days, while a 3090 needs 4 to 5 days. You need to run a software on it, called GPUowl.
