Folding@Home beats Supercomputer…

By on

The Folding@Home project, which Sony signed up in March, has proven its self as it compiled a year’s worth of data in one month. More than 250,000 users have signed up. Folding@Home uses the idle PS3 to simulate how proteins assume roles in living tissues. At average, they have managed to reach a top speed of 400 teraflops; at its busiest, it can reach 700 teraflops. Comparing it to the no.1 supercomputer, BlueGene L has a top speed of 280.6 teraflops.

Thanks for coming onboard!
We're excited to have you.
