I'm not so optimistic anymore that a prime will turn up... Last fiddled with by bur on 2021-05-03 at 07:49
 2021-05-29, 07:06 #13 bur   Aug 2020 251 Posts Things progressed much faster than I expected, the last batch 4,095e6 < n < 4,100e6 will be assigned to a core today and everything should be finished until June, 10th. If there will be no prime in these last few numbers, I'll continue by sieving the proth side to higher n and doing LLR on-the-fly depending on sieve/LLR times as LaurV suggested. According to prime95 I'll be able to continue single-threaded until an FFT size of 640k is reached which will be around n = 5.6e6, which agrees nicely with the 5.3 MB of L3 each core has. I just hope a prime will turn up before testing becomes really slow. I'm set on finding a mega prime for this k though. :D Last fiddled with by bur on 2021-05-29 at 07:08
 2021-06-11, 10:59 #14 bur   Aug 2020 25110 Posts All n < 4,100,000 have been tested, no new primes other than the ones already posted. Currently I'm sieving in the range of 4,100,000 < n < 10,000,000. Smallest p-P range in progress: 87E12-107E12 Avg. time per factor: 810 s Largest p-P range in progress: 310E12-330E12 Avg. time per factor: 3160 s Remaining candidates: 100,936 / 5,900,000 (1.71%) Est. time per LLR test of smallest candidate: 5600 s (n = 4,100,014)
