What the media has to say on Folding@home crossing a Petaflop...


Official post by the F@h team:
Crossing the petaflop barrier
Folding@home blog
It looked like we've just crossed over a petaflop, some time last night. This is something we've been expecting for a while, due to the great performance that comes from the PS3 client. In particular, recent PS3 updates (see previous post) have greatly enhanced the performance of the PS3 client (running GB WU's). We expect this number to continue to rise a bit more (maybe to 1.1 or 1.2 PFLOPS) as we switch over to running exclusively GB WU's.
