Earlier this month the team behind Folding@Home setup the distributed computing platform to uncover the many mysteries of COVID-19. With so many people wanting to do their part by donating their CPU and GPU power Folding@Home has achieved over 470 petaFLOPS of compute power, which makes it the largest supercomputer in the world!
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!

If you didn’t see our earlier post we have setup a Folding@Home group for ThinkComputers: 242628
Since his first tweet Bowman posted another update of what Folding@Home has achieved, and below, you will be able to see Folding@Home’s first glimpse of the COVID-19 spike protein.
