Submission + - PS3 Folding like crazy

hlimethe3rd writes: We've seen numerous articles about the Playstation 3 being a total flop as a gaming machine. But now, the machine is tearing through Folding@Home. It already accounts for almost 75% of the FLOPS for the whole project . Much in the same way as the GPU client produced amazing results, the PS3's cell architecture is ideally suited for Folding calculations. So don't buy one as a gaming console, buy one to save your grandmother.
