Submission + - PS3 Client for Folding@Home Debuts

eliot1785 writes: Stanford's Folding@Home project is reporting that Sony debuted a Folding@Home client for the PlayStation 3 today in Germany. Researchers hope to use the power of the PS3's Cell processor to greatly expand the number of FLOPS of which their network is capable.

F@H also announced today that they will release a client capable of running on ATI graphics processors.

With these two new developments, F@H hopes to raise the total power of their distributed computing network to 1-10 petaflops . At the upper end of that target, the network would be faster than any current supercomputer, at least in terms of FLOPS.

If bankers can count, how come they have eight windows and only four tellers?
