Then my "other" calc does the same in "an order of 10 times the magnitude". So, in 0,432 secs it has performed 0,000226379693794 of the work that my Prime has done.. (0,432^10=~2,26*10^-4)

Not quite.

An order of magnitude. Or two orders of magnitude and so on.
When you say "an order of 10 times the magnitude" maybe you mean "ten orders of magnitude".

In this case it would be: 0.432 e10 or 0.432 x 10^10 .
Yes, that was my first approach. But I wanted it to be "orders of ten" smaller, thus my approach. Anyway, "orders of magnitude" is an arbitrary and very unaccurate measure since one does not know which direction it goes and/or which "magnitude" one chooses. Stars are x^~2,512 decimal are x^10 and binary are x^2 and so on. Then again "zero point.." will always be less in any orders of magnitude unless the magnitude is negative.
