Or he probably owns an internet cafe, and when it closes, he runs them all with F@H.

i haven't investigated but perhaps the PS3 client defaults to "PS3" as a team/name if you don't configure it?

You're probably right, because I don't see how one, person can do all that.

DailyTech - Xbox 360 Folding@home Participation a Possibility

Xbox 360 owners, might be able to participate. They said that, the 360's CPU is not as powerful, for folding, as it is for PS3. But 360's ATI GPU, could do better, since F@H, supports ATI graphic cards for folding.

The problem that people mentioned about the 360, is overheating issues.

wow...phantom, you're coming along really nicely with folding..keep it up!

Thanks so are you, Im still waitng to see your score go over 1000 24hr Avg.. That would have to be a record for TF.

Now I just have to change my F@H userbar, forgot all about that.

I looked up that guy PS3 on the F@H site.......


Active processors (within 50 days) 53564
Active processors (within 7 days) 13461

So maybe it's just a forum all going under the same name or something?

And about the 360's, the new 360 Elites are very nice. My cousin has one and the air being pushed out is actually cool, while on mine it's like a blow dryer lol. They must have completely redesigned the cooling, and I must say they did an awesome job. It's a lot quieter too, so I think F@H on a 360 elite would be a possible option.
