COMMENTS

With bound set at 4*10^14, the linkedto PARI program completed its run in about 2 days (producing 48 terms). The program fixes prospective smallest 4 prime factors so their product is at or above the minimum possible of the largest of 3 products of 4 primes without overlap (A260075(4)=20553), doing boundrestricted testing for the larger 4 in turn for each of these smaller quadruples. This is just one of a variety of ways of fixing a prospective trio by specifying one member as being within a certain range and satisfying the criterion. The program mostly avoids duplicates but does not entirely. See the part of the corresponding program at A259350 immediately before the print command for a fix.
The efficiency the program seems to generate empirically would come from the specification of product of 4 smaller primes as greater than a certain value and whole product within a certain range. Running through all even products of 8 distinct primes between the cube root of the (3n)th primorial and the bound given would be a simpler way but one not so statistically limited (with a proportionally larger number of candidates). Note: The author is not making a claim of maximal efficiency, just of marked improvements over some simpler approaches.

EXAMPLE

102099792179229=3*13*19*53*83*131*181*1321, 102099792179230=2*5*17*43*127*229*283*1697, and 102099792179231=7*11*23*29*31*71*113*7993. No smaller collection meets the criterion, so a(1)=102099792179230.
