Not sure if this is really news but man i wish i had that many cores and ram to fold with
Jaws dropped in our Folding@home forum over the weekend, as our average production rate doubled - thanks to a single user.
Calling himself zz9pzza (and james_ on our forums), our team's new recruit produced nearly six million points on 21 March - close to double the average production rate of the entire CPC team.
That was enough to see zz9pzza rocketing to the top of the worldwide producers chart over the weekend. Thankfully, zz9pzza, who has already rocketed to a team rank of 47, took the time to calm some of the nerves of over-excited folders and revealed the monstrous hardware he has at his disposal.
'So I am breaking in three racks,' explained James in our Folding forum, 'each rack has four chassis, each chassis has 14 blades. Each blade is a dual processor machine with six cores per processor and 36GB of RAM.'
As forum user Mankz pointed out, this means that zz9pzza's folding farm contains 2,016 cores and 6TB of RAM.
