Over 1 Million PS3 Owners have used Folding@Home


Folding@Home

Folding@home first arrived on the XMB March 22, 2007. And since then, if you average it out, around 3,000 PS3 owners register each day since then. Now it’s over 1 million strong.

In line with this another milestone, Stanford Associate Professor of Chemistry Vijay Pande had this to say:

Since partnering with SCEI, we have seen our research capabilities increase by leaps and bounds through the continued participation of Folding@Home users.

Now we have over one million PS3 users registered for Folding@Home, allowing us to address questions previously considered impossible to tackle computationally, with the goal of finding cures to some of the world’s most life-threatening diseases.

That’s great news, keep those PS3’s folding. Maybe next year we’ll hit 2 millions users or more! We actually have our own Folding@Home team here at PS3Blog.net and we are doing very well. Currently we are ranked at 345.

We have even out folded Joystiq’s team :) To join our team, just enter 55054 as the team number, for more info check out this post.

    That’s a big number of population. It seems that folding at home is gaining its popularity.

    Electricity is too expensive here to justify it (16.64c/kWh). And we don’t get any discounts or tax breaks like universities or industry gets, so I don’t feel that happy so heavily subsidising the research. Even if it is for a ‘good cause’.

    I’ll start folding again as soon as I get my ps3 back, still no word of the repair :(

    If it weren’t for my wife, I’d have a second ps3 already
