Folding@Home, with HDR visualizations!
Future PS3 owners
rejoice as Folding@Home will be available for the PS3 console. The
puts the PS3’s
to good use by folding proteins which is somewhat in line of
Sony’s overconfidence of the PS3 rendering the PC useless
. Folding@Home performance from the Cell processor is expected around 100 gigaflops per PS3 console and top out one petaflop with 10,000 PS3’s.
In addition to the 100 gigaflop protein folding capabilities, Cure@PS3 will have enhanced visualization features. The enhanced visualization capabilities will take advantage of HDR and ISO surface rendering features of the
NVIDIA RSX graphics processor
. Molecules can also be navigated in real time using the PS3’s motion sensitive controller allowing users to view the proteins from different angles.
PS3’s high price pushing away developers
, PS3 owners will have something to put all those unused processor cycles to use.
"Google fired a shot heard 'round the world, and now a second American company has answered the call to defend the rights of the Chinese people." -- Rep. Christopher H. Smith (R-N.J.)
