Default fft length changes

why is my computer doing benchmarks from time to time, it chooses fft 4608k at 6.3ms iter and sometimes it uses fft 2668k with 3.1ms iter, why does it change that?

It is optimizing the size for speed and accuracy. Larger FFT's are slower and more accurate. Smaller are faster, but the error can add up. It is basically a rounding error. Do more digits and the rounding error is unimportant. Do fewer digit and the rounding error can have an impact. Larger exponents need larger FFT's.

Which size is best may change based upon computer usage changes during the run and other factors.

The faster FFT is double-checking a small exponent probably around 48 million. The slower FFT is testing a large exponent likely around 85 million.

Yes you could f.e. switch off manual the auto benchmarking in prime.txt



AutoBench=0
