Folding@Home, with HDR visualizations!

Future PS3 owners rejoice as Folding@Home will be available for the PS3 console. The Cure@PS3 project puts the PS3’s Cell processor 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.

With the PS3’s high price pushing away developers, PS3 owners will have something to put all those unused processor cycles to use.

i just can't wait to purchase my overpriced ps3 and have it die within a week from crunching 24/7.

oh well if the rumours are true it's not like there's going to be a ton of games released for awhile.

still.....i can't wait until i see winning eleven on it.

Didn't you hear, the next FIFA and winning eleven are both going to be 360 exclusives.

M$ are claiming PES6 for the 360 which is not Winning Eleven....the jap version is always superior.

btw PES6 is only the WE10 port which has been out for ages..it's not the true next gen version of the series.

That next gen version WILL be on PS3 before the 360.

It's just more M$ spin at work
