I timed a PrP test on my Athlon 1GHz for 3*2^47000-1 at 3,600 seconds or exactly a hour meaning that NewPGen's new cut off point for 'n' between 400,000 and 500,000 is 10 plus minutes.
I don't agree on this one, i think you should be sieving much deeper, close to 1 hour per candidate removal. Especially when lower tests are still available to assign. sieving form 400K-1M is only 10% slower then sieving from 500K-1M
