That's not quite as drastic a change over the range as the 0.12 to 0.2 you reported. This was done on a C2D@3.4GHz using the 64bit Linux gnfs-lasieve4I14e.
Thanks for the info. I must have been reading that 0.2 number from a worker that had to share part of a core.

I can provide real data to show this, but you can test it for yourself with the data you have now.
Ah, that's what I was forgetting! Thanks again.
