PS3 floating point crunching eating windows/wintel machine at breakfeast
According to [email protected] home, the PS3 raw cpu power is impressive.
Since 2000 and in less than a year on the market, it look like the Sony PS3 is 10 times more powerful than any PC. With 10 times less CPU, it process twice more TFLOPS
|OS Type||Current TFLOPS*||Active CPUs||Total CPUs|

I would like also to mention the Sunday Night Foldathon (S.N.F)
The S.N.F event is simple. On Sunday Night (March. 25th 2007) everyone who wants to participate in the S.N.F event simply turn there PS3 on and start the folding program, could be anytime you want or when you goto bed, you may let the program run as long as you want but would be great if it could atleast last till 7am Monday morning, its all up to you since anything helps. This is to see how much help we (the playstation community) can be for this program and to show them that the feature is being widely used and maybe saving lives in the process.
