Folding@home Makes Guinness World Record

| | Comments (0)
Sony announced that it has received official acknowledgement from Guinness World Records that Folding@home is the "most powerful distributed computing network in the world."
The Folding@home project, that has involved around 670,000 PlayStation 3 owners, has PlayStation 3 consoles (and PCs) doing computing for Stanford University's protein folding project when the console has processor power to spare. By the end of September, Sony is pleased that PlayStation 3 consoles alone were responsible for a petaflop (one quadrillion floating point operations per second).
