Default Folding@Home Passes The 5 Petaflop Mark

For those that are interested, from the blog of Vijay Pande; Folding@home
Folding@home passes the 5 petaflop mark

Based on our FLOP estimate (see http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/main.py?qtype=osstats), Folding@home has passed the 5 petaflop mark recently. To put it in context, traditional supercomputers have just broken the 1 petaflop mark, and even that level of performance is very challenging to aggregate. The use of GPU's and Cell processors is has been key to this, and in fact the NVIDIA numbers alone have just passed 2 petaflops.

Thanks to all who have contributed and we look forward to the next major milestones to be crossed!

Interesting how they accredit Cell with doing so much but the points you get for Folding with a PS3 is pathetic.
