More than 30,000 gamers around the world have already signed up to Stanford University's Folding@home project, which aims to study the causes of diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, cystic fibrosis and cancers.
Sony and Stanford University's Folding@home project have created an application that breaks huge processing tasks into smaller units, also known as distributed computing, thereby allowing Playstation 3 owners to donate extra processing power to scientists studying protein folding.
NVIDIA is also collaborating with researchers in Stanford's Folding@home distributed computing project, which utilizes the computing horsepower of graphics processing units and idle computers to simulate protein folding to help find cures for life-threatening diseases.
For example, consumers today can use their GeForce 9 Series GPUs to run applications such as Folding@home and join online protein folding teams to help find cures for diseases such as AlzheimerCOs or ParkinsonCOs.
