I always appreciate it when you guys start these threads because it reminds me that I didn't restart F@H the last time I had to restart my computer.

Folding@home Passes Petaflop Mark
9/25/2007

By David Nagel

The distributed computing project known as Folding@home (FAH) last week passed one of its long-anticipated milestones: more than a petaflop of computational power, reached Sept. 16. The group, run out of Stanford University's Department of Chemistry, placed credit for the surge beyond its 1 Pflops goal on the Playstation 3 and the latest PS3 client app, which is designed to take greater advantage of the floating point power of the PS3's Cell B.E. processor.

A note posted on Folding@home's blog Tuesday ("Post petaflop") read: "We've all been very excited about the great turnout of FAH donors over the last few days, allowing FAH to go over a petaflop. The PS3s have been cranking out some very useful scientific results due to the new scientific software present in v1.2."


and ....
The bulk of the flops is being delivered by PS3 systems, which account for 0.853 Pflops out of the 1.116 total using roughly 34,500 PS3 CPUs--about 25 Gflops apiece. By contrast, there are about 172,000 Windows-based systems in the project resulting in a comparatively scant 0.164 Pflops. The 4,116 Intel-based Macs in the project are delivering about 0.013 Pflops total.

This is why we keep getting passed by teams of PS3s. You just can't compete with the points that they put out- it is like night and day.

I think they are probably over-estimating the power of the PS3, I bet that is a marketing number. Still, it is good for the project.

I still don't have a PS3.

My points/day pretty much went up by 400%-500% after F@H came out for the PS3. It gets me about 1000 pts a day and my Core 2 Duo gets be about 100-200 pts on each processer.

When I run my PS3, I get similar results. I just got uncomfortable running it that often given the tight space I've got it in.

Those of us contributing via Playstation 3 should be getting a update to the client next time they log in.

v2.10 changes
- Shut down timer options. You can tell the PS3 to shut down in a couple hours or after it completes it the next packet. Good if you want the PS3 to do some Folding, but not run all night.
- music player integration - you can listen to all the mp3s you have on the hard disk from the Folding program, rather than having to shut down folding to listen to music.

Welcome to DrunkyMacGreed. If you have a W name, please let me know so I can link it up.

Also, pay attention as this week, I will be passed for the #1 spot on the team.

According to the official news page for F@H Click Here (folding.typepad.com) they may FINALLY be getting the PS3 servers back up and running.

For the last week or so I (and MANY others) haven't been able to upload any WUs and, as of yesterday, I haven't been able to download any new ones.

From what they've been hinting at, a new PS3 client update will be released to handle these new issues.

Oh, so that's what's going on. I didn't notice it wasn't uploading till today and thought I had something screwed up on my end.

It looks like they've done all the server side fixes they can do until Sony releases a new version of the client.

I seem to be the only one on the team who hasn't been comped for missing points, hopefully they will fix that in the days to come.

Our FAH stats page is going to be screwed up for the next 24 hours. Sorry. I made a few changes to the charts and I had to delete some of the period IDs, which is causing the "Last 24 hours" chart to not work correctly.

It will be back to normal in 24 hours.

Also - I figured out how I could get more points per unit. Try out the beta SMP client if you have a dual processor machine. I went from 300 ppd (points per day) to around 1700 with 3 machines running.

So -- it's a race again, Zeruel

There's a new client (1.31) available for the PS3, designed to fix the uploading/downloading problems. You should get it the next time you login.

Wow, that beta sure is buggy. At least once a day the four core processes will dissappear after a half a day but the fah.exe is still running.

I had it running for half a day with no progress before I realized what had happened. I shut it down and restarted and it picked up right where it paused.

Oh, the race is on, but it's for second. Unless something happens in the mean time, Caliban is going to zoom pass us in two years or less.

Between sometime in December, and a few weeks ago, my computer stopped assigning drive letter to my CF card reader. I thought it was maybe the reader, so I bought a new one. Still no luck.
