A press release about [email protected] from Sony:
Tokyo, April 25, 2007 – Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCE) today announced that great progress has been made in the one month since PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™) computer entertainment systems became part of Stanford University’s [email protected]™ program, a distributed computing project aimed at understanding protein folding, misfolding and related diseases. Since the program launched in March, participation by the PS3 user community has been phenomenal, providing [email protected] with immense computing power that is helping to fast forward its research. Furthermore, thanks to PS3’s powerful Cell Broadband Engine™ (Cell/B.E.), the [email protected] program has become one of the most powerful distributed computing networks in the world and is quickly approaching a level of computing power that is of historical proportions.
Exhibiting its continued commitment to the program, SCE also announced that starting tomorrow, it is providing a [email protected] application update that will further enhance the user experience. The updated software features an improvement in folding calculation speeds, increased visibility of user location (*1) on the globe and the ability for users to create longer donor or team names.
