    Standaard PS3 helping boinc.be :)

    So i picked up a PS3 yesterday in antwerp at midnight. Here's a pic:



    With the firmware 1.6, a folding@home icon appeared. I installed it and it appears the ps3 is about as powerful as 20-30 regular pc's in folding. So from now on, i have given a bit more crunching power to the team . Anyone interested in picking up one just for crunching ?

    Here's a pic from folding @ home. Notice how every light in the pic ressembles someone's ps3 folding proteins. I looked this afternoon and damn there are a lot in the us and japan. Europe not so much atm, but it's slowly increasing .



    Let's see how the ps3 stacks up against normal cpu's at folding (the number of flops is still increasing, 1 petaflop soon?)


    I joined boinc.be, we're still number 43791 but i don't see a lot of members, hope to see you soon .

    My goals: 3.000.000 credits

    I didn't know a PS could do that. But now I'm just wondering why they support this project in particular? Just to prove the power of the PS or Sony is involved in that project?

    Folding is special in the sense that it experiments with new technologies for its clients. Like using a PC's graphic processor to run work units tens of times faster than on a CPU. I haven't read details on how PS3 technology can be used to achieve the same, but I suppose it's similar.

    The CPU design of the PS3 is a thing of beauty

    There are about 20k ps3 folding now, accouning for almost 70% of the workload and achieving an amazing 500 terraflops .
