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.
