Project Summary
A volunteer distributed computing project

It is a novel distributed supercomputing infrastructure made of many PlayStation3 and NVIDIA graphics cards joined together to deliver high-performance all-atom biomolecular simulations. The molecular simulations performed by our volunteers are some of the most common types performed by scientists in the field, but they are also some of the most computationally demanding and usually require a supercomputer.
Running GPUGRID on GPUs innovates volunteer computing by delivering supercomputing class applications on a cost effective infrastructure which will greatly impact the way biomedical research is performed.
Be part of it

If you enjoy science, you can participate by donating computing time to scientific research. Simply follow the instructions below to start, gain your credits for the results you return, join a team, meet and exchange experiences with other participants in the forums.

Visit our Science page and find out how PlayStation3 and NVIDIA graphics cards can help biomedical research.
And visit our Gallery to know more about us and what we do through our pictures and videos.


The following platforms are supported:

Microsoft Windows X86 (32bit)
Linux X86_64                 (64bit)

There is a new version of ACEMD that will run on the new Nvidia Turing type cards like GTX 1660Ti and all the RTX cards.
