I downloaded the Folding@Home software for the PS3 and started running it. Looking at the stats, the PS3 community seems to be doing most of the number crunching. Here is the statistics table at 11:20am today.

OS Type Current TFLOPS* Active CPUs Total CPUs
Mac OS X/PowerPC7894195614
Mac OS X/Intel1031127776
GPU 467732287
PLAYSTATION®3 4913085042003
Total 752231903 1993920

Its great to be able to contribute to such a great cause. The Folding@Home project applies simulations to further study of protein folding and related diseases, including Alzheimer’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease, and certain forms of cancer.
