It's a complex interplay between RAM, exponent, chance of factor (previous TF, new B1/B2). It's probably safe to say that if Prime95 selected those bounds for that assignment, then it's the appropriate bounds.

Got it. 100M digit Mersenne factored to 2^80, B1=1369000 and B2=96916000. Given how fast this is compared to a PRP test, if I happen to be on the same version of P95, I might increase those values manually next time just because it's so fast!

You can, of course, but the auto-selected values are carefully balanced to give an optimal balance of time spent on P-1 vs chance of finding a factor. You can increase the bounds and have a higher chance of finding a factor on this exponent, but your overall rate of factors found per time will decrease (the amount of time spent goes up faster than the chance of finding a factor).

If it is possible to upgrade the RAM in your computer, upgrade it to the maximum capacity and allocate the maximum RAM you can to the program. It will automatically choose _much_ higher bounds.

Unfortunately I only have 32GB ram and I allocated 27GB. Maybe I'll get more ram on my next laptop.

Just being lazy.
