20, 40, 60 or 80GB?
Someone over @ Wired.com put together this Venn Diagram, to help gamers decide.
My money is on the 20 & 60GB models if you can find them.
Early adopters rule!!!
While browsing through my Playstation 3 XMB (yeah, why didn’t Sony call it CMB, I guess Sony focus groups found the letter “X” cooler), I noticed under the “Network” sub-menu there’s a Folding@Home icon.
Folding@Home is a project cooked up by these really smart guys over at Stanford University.
“Folding@Home (also known as FAH or F@H) is a distributed computing project designed to perform computationally intensive simulations of protein folding and other molecular dynamics. It was launched on October 1, 2000, and is currently managed by the Pande Group, within Stanford University’s chemistry department, under the supervision of Professor Vijay Pande. Folding@home is one of the world’s largest distributed computing projects. The goal of the project is “to understand protein folding, misfolding, and related diseases.”
Well I downloaded the program into my PS3, installed and ran it. Don’t know exactly what its doing but it looks cool. =D
Here’s a screen shot of the simulation
See that little yellow dot on the map of California? That’s me!!! Actually that’s my PS3 running an assigned task. An assigned task takes an average of 8hrs to complete.
Apparently, you can run this program in Windows, Mac or Linux. It’s good to know that all Fanboys can set their differences aside and work for the greater good of Mankind.
I’ve seen screen shots of this game for months now and have wondered how it plays.
