In our last report Folding@Home was at 1.5 Exaflops and had eclipsed the theoretical El Capitan Supercomputer not due to come online until 2023. Folding@Home has gained another 900petaFLOPS and is now not only 15x more powerful than the next most powerful supercomputer, IBM's Summit but more powerful than the next 500 supercomputers combined. Researchers have been scrambling to create more simulations to run as computational performance growth has exceeded all expectations.

The TechPowerup! team is currently ranked #29 with 618 active Folders. If you want to donate some spare cycles you can download the client over at the Folding@Home web page and download the installer for your client. When setting up the client make sure to enter your TeamID as 50711 to help us rise the ladder to world domination. This is an easy way to contribute to the largest computational medical cure research project ever completing vital research on COVID-19 and various other diseases.

Been doing for it for the past month. Should have started years ago. For some reason my ryzen+Vega system doesn't get many tasks tho, contrary to my secondary i7+nvidia..

Dont forget to show love to rosetta@home, they research the structures and give likely structures to stanford to do further study on

What's the point when you can't get a work unit, 2 weeks worth of nothing oh except a faulty unit which was bounced as soon as it downloaded and tried to start

You can't get a work unit because they have shit servers and are waiting on structures from Rosetta ... back when I stopped, they benchmarked the 32c min work units with a 2600k... probably still using it to server up units.

Seems like bad luck to me, as I keep getting work units and I only started a few days ago.

I've been folding regular since 2015 and am nearing 1 Billion points. Lately it's been very difficult to even get new work units and my GPU's have been idle 50% of the time. Well, it's for the better good so I won't complain.
