Submission + - Folding@home Petaflop Barrier Crossed (

An anonymous reader writes: The Folding@Home project has now passed the astounding 1 Petaflop barrier. The project run from Stanford University owes much of its success to the PlayStation 3 which joined the fight earlier this year. Around 80% of the total projects processing power is from the PS3 alone, outpacing the linux community by 22x despite having a similar user base working on project. With the recent introduction of the GPU clients 2 Petaflops wont be to far away.
