Amazing! @foldingathome
now has over 470 petaFLOPS of compute power. To put that in perspective, that's more than 2x the peak performance of the Summit super computer!

The Summit super computer is in the United States and is ranked #1 in the list of Top500 supercomputers below ...

Thanks to our AMAZING community, we’ve crossed the exaFLOP barrier! That’s over a 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 operations per second, making us ~10x faster than the IBM Summit!

Yes, truly an impressive number. Wondering how many will keep doing it. BOINC has only ~3.5% retention rate (result in last 60 days). I wonder what it is for F@H.

I am getting a constant stream of wu's now but can only do 7 GPU's and 44 threads or else my network gets I/O bound. Even then I have to pause everything so we can watch a film.

Stay safe mates.

I started up my 2 X 1660TI GPU machine and have started Folding as well.  Could not get the two to get work for a while but they have two wu running now.  https://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/user_list.php?s=&t=43781

I have to turn it off while I sleep as it is too noisy to keep it going as I need it to be dark and quite to sleep.
