Default Have you seen this guy rig ?

Atlas Folding

That's quite amazing. He plans on getting 19 GTX285 folding in a 19" rack.

Out of curiosity, has folding done anything for people yet?

Yep. Peer reviewed papers on results using FaH: Folding@home - Papers

Lots of results/stories on Huntingtons and Influenza in the news section as well

I like what he's doing, but the fact that he's using so much electricity, which in turn comes with a high electricity bill and more CO2 released into the atmosphere to generate that electricity means I don't like his idea of folding. I mean it's great how he's taken it up to another level and everything, but to me, folding should not cost me an extra $300/month on electricity alone and should not cause an excess amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere, thus causing global warming. All the stuff that we got from Folding@Home would be useless if mankind is wiped out due to global warming.

Did that make sense? Hopefully you guys got my message....

Well, if he lives in Ontario where there's numerous dirty (coal?) power plant, that makes sense, but if he lives in Quebec where hydroelectricity is king, that does not .

Nah, I'm joking. But at least, "superfolder" like this are quite rare. And he just have to take his bicycle a couple of times more or plant a couple of trees and he could be fine. I guess that 19 GTX295 on 5 systems will consume something like 5.5 kW. My house consume 7 kW of power on average from mid-december to mid-february. It's definitely going to be hot where he lives.

Anyway.
