NVIDIA takes the lead in Folding@Home

Posted on Tuesday, August 19 2008 @ 23:13:19 CEST by

A while ago the first Folding@Home client for NVIDIA GPUs was released and in no time NVIDIA graphics cards managed to become the top contributor to this distributed computing network.

The statistics unveil more than 40 percent of Folding@Home's computing power now comes from NVIDIA's CUDA-enabled graphics cards. Just 11,370 systems with NVIDIA cards deliver 1,251 teraFLOPS of computing power, significantly more than the 198 teraFLOPS provided by 208,268 Windows PCs.

If you do the math you'll see that an average NVIDIA or ATI graphics card running Folding@Home delivers 115x more computing power than the average system with Intel or AMD processors. Furthermore, the GPUs are also considerably more powerful than the PlayStation 3's Cell processor.
