F@H are churning out more work,bringing more servers up, and are now the most powerful computer ever assembled – just passed the ExaFLOP barrier!

Quote:

In an astounding accomplishment powered by normal people around the world joining forces to beat the coronavirus, the administrators of the Folding@Home network reported today that the network has passed one exaFLOP of compute power, which is the equivalent of ten times the compute power of the world’s fastest supercomputer, Summit. It’s also more raw compute power than the top 103 supercomputers in the world, combined.

A quick check of the stats today at Folding@Home reveals the network is now theoretically capable of 1.5 exaFLOPS from CPUs, powered by 4,630,510 CPU cores, and is augmented by 435,563 GPUs.
