Crowd Computing infrastructure Folding@Home is closing in on 100 Petaflop/s performance

15 May 2016 - Crowd Computing infrastructure Folding@Home reports that in terms of Flop/s performance it is closing to 100 Petaflop/s, which would be a major milestone in computing. In terms of the ability to tackle complex systems, Folding@Home is simulating considerably bigger, more complex systems for longer timescales than ever before. Over the last 3 years, Folding@Home has seen a few trends, especially consolidation into people to use GPUs and the increase in power from those GPUs. Folding@Home estimates that today it is running off the power of about 40.000 GPUs.
