So, the ~30% performance loss in grmfaktc relative to mfaktc means Mersenne factorers should stick with the mainstream mfaktc.

For now yes. At a later point I might create a version that uses the original code path for Mersenne primes, probably once I have included negative bases...

Something I was thinking about late yesterday evening: Below is a line from your work example file in the archive.
Code:
Factor=base=10,1055167,1,64

hi,
i tried out grmfaktc0.21 with base=6, n=600k to 1000k on a gtx1050ti and the performance is good

hi,
i think that i need stages=1 because i do use StopAfterFactor=2 in mfaktc.ini

An example: I have a very old factoring program called Factor5. It uses the CPU only. A while back, I gave it a small exponent, M1619 I believe it was. Start and end bits in the mid 60's. It stayed at 0.000% for 20 minutes or so before it changed. I did the math to 100%. Hundreds of years, or maybe thousands. So, it would not be anywhere near practical to do anything like this, even with a GPU.
