I only care about my computers efficiency and electricity bills.


If the sieve time for a range was linear with the amount of candidates, yes we would have done smaller ranges. But that is not the case so we will continue to sieve as it is.

The file 3M-6M takes x sec. that does not mean that 5M-6M takes x/3 sec.

Do some tests and you will see for your self.
