Folding client for Nvidia GPU’s confirmed
Apparently we aren’t allowed to talk about specifics on performance of the client, mostly because the numbers we saw were based on an “upcoming NVIDIA GPU”. I don’t think I’ll be spoiling anything by saying the new GPU was incredibly fast and the upcoming GPU will be faster than any Folding client today including the PS3; you will be impressed.
Regardless, the fact that NVIDIA is finally joining the Folding@Home community is great news – especially for our own PC Perspective Folding Frogs team! Vijay also discussed the creation of the OpenMM, a platform API that will be used to allow other molecular calculations be easily distributed to various computers and will have integrated support for both NVIDIA and AMD GPUs as well as modern CPUs.
