Folding@Home Now at Almost 2.5 Exaflops To Fight COVID-19

Ever since users starting donating their compute prowess to Folding@home which would be put in use by researchers and scientists to fight against COVID-19, we have seen some spectacular feats being achieved. Last month, Folding@home announced that the total processing power added to its network has hit 1.5 Exaflops but just three weeks later, they have far exceeded the number with far more processing power that is faster than the top 500 supercomputers of the world.

Folding@Home’s Total Processing Power To Fight COVID-19 Now At Almost 2.5 Exaflops

The announcement was posted on Twitter by Folding@home where they confirmed that their total processing power is now at ~2.4 Exaflops which is almost 2.5 Exaflops of peak processing power to crunch solutions to fight against COVID-19.

Intel’s 10th Gen Comet Lake Desktop CPU Prices Revealed – Core i9-10900 With 10 Cores For Under $500 US, Core i7-10700K For $400 US, Core i7-10700 For $350 US

According to Folding@home, the total processing power exceeds that of the world’s top 500 super-computers. it’s great to see the tech community come together in an effort to fight against COVID-19 which has resulted in over 100,000 fatalities and over 1.8 million cases across the globe. The 3 big hardware companies, NVIDIA, Intel & AMD have pledged support to Folding@home. NVIDIA also announced that it would bring it AI and HPC expertise to fight against COVID-19.
