Folding@Home On Your PS3 Team 54595
Folding@home is fired up for a PS3 download today. We would like to see just how much damage that Cell processor could do to one of them work units. The app is a separate download from that of today's 1.6 firmware, though the update did land the Folding@home icon inside the "Network" section of the PS3 XMB menu without us having to do a thing.
The 50MB download took a few minutes, but after that we were up, running and crunching a work unit in no time. Sony predicted the average work unit would take an hour to complete, but ours says it's got a good 6-7 hours to go on its first unit, so we're not sure who's in error here, Sony or the prediction algorithm.
New team MoPo with number 54595 has been founded.
