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 .
