Now we probably can take F13 to the next level, and start on 65 digits. But what happens when we get one or both to the end of the 65 digits level without finding a factor?
We start on the 70 digits level. These numbers need the >100 digit level before NFS we don't stand a chance of progressing beyond ECM any time soon without a new algorithm.
