I briefly tested 6.3.1 compiled with MPIR 2.5.0 and 6.4 compiled with MPIR 2.4.0 and 6.3.1 matches the old 6.3.1 faster times while 6.4 matches the other 6.4 times, so it's gmp-ecm that is a bit slower not mpir.
So there's no reason to use ecm64-1681mpir250core2-64-asmredc?

Btw; Does anyone know why this happens?
