Folding@home embraces PS3

Wanna do some protein folding on the PS3?

THE DISTRIBUTED computing network designed to study protein folding and protein folding disease, Folding@home, has announced plans to launch a service on the upcoming Sony Playstation 3.

Via the Playstation 3’s Cell processor, Folding@home expects to achieve performance of around 100 gigaflops per console, whilst reaching the petaflop level with around 10,000 consoles working in conjunction. The project is currently named ‘Cure@PS3’.

Cool, huh?
