Wow, I've been noticing quite often how people are quick to jump on anyone who reports good news about the PS3, and how people are quick to jump on anyone who reports bad news about the Wii or 360. You guys hate it when Sony spouts BS, yet there are quite a number of you who do the same, difference being those working at Sony are getting paid and laid for doing their job.
It's only been a little more than two days since the software was introduced, but the PS3's entry into Folding@Home has already moved Stanford's distributed computing project forward by leaps and bounds. As of approximately 4:00 PM EST, the latest statistics on the project have shown that PS3 users are contributing 367 Tera (trillion) FLoating point Operations Per Second (TFLOPS), which is currently more than twice the amount of all of the other operating systems participating in the project combined. And that number is growing rapidly, as Kotaku originally reported that PS3 users had contributed only 251 TFLOPS as of 8:00 AM EST this morning.
Of course, there still will be people still sipping their own kool-aid and spining the news any way they can. Just curious, if the 360 was capable of this, how many of you would ride the PS3 to the ground for all its worth? I mean, if the Xenon is more capable than the Cell and there a lot more 360 owners than PS3 owners, why didn't Microsoft offer a hand in this project? But then again, loyalty should always prevail when it's the competition that's helping out in finding a cure for devastating diseases.
Keep it up guys, you make the Gamepro and Gamespot forums seem pacifistic and unbiased.
