I really appreciate the detailed explanation! Thank you.

I was planning on enrolling a second laptop core to finish to 2500 sooner than 90 days, and was expecting 4-6 desktop cores of over double the laptop's Ghz for 2500-10k. Sounds like 10x the hardware is not nearly enough for 10k 3 months after 2500!

Perhaps I'll get to n=5000 and call it good. We'll see.

My estimate went something like "10k is four times higher than 2500, so tests take 16x longer. But there will only be half as many k's, so 8x the hardware ought to do it!"

Naturally, that ignores the increased length of the range, as you so nicely detailed.
