    Several days ago, the Techpowerup Folding at Home (F@H) team made it into the top 200 teams in the official F@H stats. This was no small feat and was accomplished due the countless hours of CPU/GPU time donated by the team’s members. I would like to thank all of them for the time, energy, and money they have selflessly donated to this wonderful project. I encourage everyone who is able to join the team and help us reach the top 100! A list of all members who have donated CPU/GPU time to the team has been included inside the thread.

    For those of you who have not heard of the Folding At Home project it is a distributed computing project run by Stanford University. It uses spare CPU/GPU cycles of idle processors from around the world to calculate the folding of proteins. Protein folding is a complex action that takes place after protein synthesis where the interaction of several forces in the molecule causes it to assemble or “fold” into its functional form. The shape of a protein has more to do with its function than its composition. The misfolding of proteins is the suspect cause behind many diseases including Alzheimer's, Mad Cow (BSE), CJD, ALS, Huntington's, Parkinson's disease, and many Cancers and cancer-related syndromes. The F@H project aims to calculate the folding/misfolding of key proteins in order to find cures and treatments for some of these debilitating diseases.

    Wow that's really cool. Feels good to know I'm helping out in some way, and it also shows that the people here at TPU care about donating to a good cause.

    Cold Storm: Exactly. Even though I fold for another team (TeamXPS), I applaud all efforts by anyone to join Folding@Home. It don't matter what team you're crunching for as long as you make yourself useful by helping out and contribute to Humanity. It's easy to do, doesn't cost anything if you already own a PC and your efforts are greatly appreciated by the community. :cool:

    To be fair it does cost a little. I once calculated out the cost of running an average folding rig 24/7 to be around $10 per month.

    Thats all it took,..just a little inspiration from a good member....I am starting up again.:toast:
    My whole family has been effected by cancer. I feel ashamed now that I think about it, that I stopped in the first place.:eek::eek::eek:
    Are Nvidias cards incorporated like ATI's in folding nowadays?
    Solaris17 says thanks.

    I just recall the quantum leap ATI's GPU's took in folding a while back and wanted to know if Nvidia was as good at doing work units.

    My PC just folding on the GPU running 24/7 costs about 20 a month.

    I crank almost 5000ppd on my 8800GS when i dont game and leave it sitting.

    Yeah, congrats to all the team.Keep up the good work.

    And anyone needing help to get there rigs folding then just post in the Folding@Home thread and you will be sure to get all the help you need from the other members.

    EDIT: @ Polaris I think you added an extra 10,000,000 on to Newtekie's score...but never mind we need the points :)
