Folding@home now has access to over 470 petaFLOPS of distributed compute power to research Covid-19 1
Why it matters: In the wake of the current Covid-19 pandemic, it’s important that we all do our part. To that end, it’s encouraging to see the PC enthusiast community come together and support such an important effort on behalf of [email protected] and their research into Covid-19.

What started as a call to action from PCMR and Nvidia has resulted in some 400K volunteers joining [email protected] to donate computing resources aimed at studying Covid-19. Before gaining traction within the PC gaming and enthusiast community, Dr. Greg Bowman stated there was around 30K active volunteers folding Covid-19 related WUs.

According to Bowman, with just 30K volunteers dedicated to Covid-19, [email protected] was around an estimated 100 petaFLOPS of computing performance. Now, with over 400K, [email protected] is capable of 470 petaFLOPS of distributed computing performance. Or, put another way, about twice the peak compute of the Summit supercomputer. Summit has a peak compute of 200 petaFLOPS, with a LINPACK benchmark of 148.6 petaFLOPS.

Following the example set by PCMR, several tech outlets have joined in as well. Tom’s Hardware, AnandTech, HotHardware, and OC3D have all put folding teams together. Even PC hardware vendors like EVGA have gotten in on it. Additionally, Gigabyte has even donated 10 high-end PCs to [email protected] research teams.

[email protected] has several CPU and GPU-based simulations aimed at analyzing the dynamics and properties of the Covid-19 proteins. From there, [email protected] will hopefully gain insight into how drugs could affect the virus, leading to potential treatment opportunities.
