PS3 Doubles the Processing Power of Stanfords Folding @ Home

Quote:

Stanford University's Folding@home distributed computing project has seen its capacity double in the last month to 700 T Flops thanks largely to the PlayStation 3 according to Sony.

The 250,000 folding PS3's now account for 400 T Flops of capacity in the effort to model and understand how proteins "fold" in the quest to solve the mysteries of such diseases as Alzheimers and BSE.
