The NVIDIA GPU folding client for any 8xxx or 9xxx series graphics cards is finally available for Windows

You'll also need to use the official NVIDIA driver version 174.55 or higher, right here:

Reports are coming out that this destroys even the PS3, which is incredible


Quote:


The new GeForce cards are expected to hit more than 650 nanoseconds of protein simulation in a single day, while the Radeon HD 3870 is stuck at about 170 ns. The Playstation 3 is able to produce "only" 100 ns of simulation, while a quad-core CPU creates an output of just four nanoseconds. For those who are keeping count: The GeForce GPU will be about 163 times faster than a quad-core processor in this specific application.
