For comparison, I've sieved 515106735 for k=460k1M
up to 2.5T and still have 78,000 candidates. Larry

Another possibility is to stop tests early. Indeed, there is nothing special about this k. No need to marry the first love

With resieve I mean: I have put 2 ranges together, to be absolute sure. I almost restart the sieve from scratch. Other point, per day I am eliminating approx 1900 factors. I'll keep this up until the find a factor rate will drop I am currently dividing the workload between 2 machines. The last point: I know that there are other K's to be searched but I really want to find some big primes. Ps. down to 98000+ tests. 3000 factors eliminated.

Sieving seems to be much more effective on my k=231. Sieving the
range n=400k1M only up to 137B leaves just 49,000 tests.

Isoule,
What is your sieving speed? Mine is P4 3 Ghz: 648 k P4 2.4Ghz: 484 k

For k=231, it looks like 629k/s on a P4 2.2GHz

Currently testing the range 231K => 240k : 576 candidates on my P4 3G.
Continuing sieving the range 500G => 1T on my P4 2.4G. Last fiddled with by ValerieVonck on 20050220 at 11:30
