I sent my params files for C120 and lower to CADO in early 2018; I believe they're included in the 3.0 git versions. The "new" params you list from the forum in August are the result of trying to eke out 5% more speed, e.g. from spending less time in poly select.

I think I didn't have a clear case that the new August params were obviously faster, so I didn't send them to the CADO folks. I do believe they're faster, but barely so. In your case, the second input was a factor of 3 smaller, so "should" have been ~5% faster even using the same params; yet, in this test, the second job was ~500 thread-sec faster (0.5%). Hrmmm

Thanks for reporting your test!
