Factoring to 87 bits
I've been thinking that in order to revive this project a bit, it might be good to get candidates up to 87 bits, as there are currently six that are at 86 bits and according to mersenne.ca (link below) 87 is the optimal bit depth for these candidates. This will pave the way for an eventual P1 and PRP/LL test of these candidates.
https://www.mersenne.ca/factorbits.p...ent=3321930371 But please let me know if any of this is incorrect, since I'm going off what the mersenne.ca and my scant/outdated knowledge.

I am not sure that even 87 bits will eventually be considered the level that we want.
Have fun. May you slay a billion digit exponent with a factor.

https://www.mersenne.ca/tf1G.php According to that page, wich holds records of TF bitdepth for all n>1000M to n<=2^32, the optimal bit level for TF for n=3321930371 is 91 bit. That is just how it looks now and it may very well be that these TF bit depths is subject for change in the future. But hey it is your ressources and you can do whatever you want and if you like to do n=3321930371 to 87 bits only, then thats your choice Happy hunting and TF

Thanks all for the responses.

http://www.mersenne.ca/exponent/3321930371 Perhaps I'm misreading it, but that seems to imply that 91 would be too high, or one of the estimates is off, perhaps due to it being so far outside of normal assigned ranges.

EDIT: Compare the LL GHDays for an exponent 1/10th the size: http://www.mersenne.ca/exponent/332193019. An exponent 10 times the size should be at least 100 times the effort, so 600K might actually be a conservative estimate. Last fiddled with by axn on 20180728 at 06:58

Thanks axn for the explanation. I might have to wait to get a better GPU, or simply do the lower ranges.
