DDR3 1600 memory and an Asus motherboard.
When I saw the discussion in this thread, I hurried it up by switching from 1 core to 4 cores. It went from 66% complete to 100% in about 9 hours.
One does not want to be know for holding up milestones.

Haha, I see.
I run my i5-4430 with two workers, two cores per thread.

EDIT: Running with 1600 dual memory, it is clearly bottlenecked..

You might consider bringing all cores per real processor to bear on the candidates. If you're memory bound, having all the (real) cores work on the same exponent may improve your overall throughput greatly since they will share the caches.

I found an overall increase of throughput of more than 100% by doing this.

This is contrary to the traditional wisdom that it is most efficient to have only a single core working on each candidate. However, my personal empirical experience is that this is an over simplification of the situation, and ignores memory bandwidth issues.

Your Millage May Vary (YMMV).

Tune your own systems, if you care enough.

You want me to push them to a faster computer? They are being worked on....

Wink Think about it. And cut down on coffee...

On a road trip to a local Disney World, children ask the driver if they can help him to pass "this particular milepost" a few seconds faster -- "Do you need us to reach for the gas pedal? We can press it harder for you! Do you want us to shift the gear up? Should we roll windows up? down? maybe we could all jump forward re-a-a-a-l fast, so the car will go faster?!"

Then no one will remember this particular milepost just a short time after, but the next one will be equally "a matter of life and death".

And of course, are we there yet? are we there yet?

I have been watching the value on the tail end. I have also been monitoring the difference between the bottom DC and LL: (LL-DC)/LL
We have been making remarkable strides lately and don't really need to worry. We are set to achieve the milestones soon enough.

Indeed. It's not like something "bad" will happen if we don't pass a milestone quickly...

No. But some find it amusing to manage and deal with the situation in "real-time".
