PS3GRID

Post by Krunchin-Keith » Sat Jun 02, 2007 1:19 pm

New project PS3GRID - http://www.ps3grid.net/PS3GRID/

PS3GRID is in BETA testing phase. If you own a PlayStation3 and wish to participate, please write to [email protected] to obtain an invitation code.

PS3GRID is a volunteer computing project based on BOINC for full-atom molecular dynamics simulations and other scientific applications specially optimized for the Cell processor and the PlayStation3.

See the Technology thread for fascinating details.

Stats are enabled now and can be downloaded by other websites.
I report testing is going well and I have had few problems.

You will need a PS3 setup with YellowDog Linux, or other Linux, but YellowDog has support for the PS3, and need to download a version of BOINC designed especially for the PS3 available from the project (will be available on BOINC download page in the future)

The application makes use of 6 of the 8 cell processors on the PS3.

I noticed this project did not get added to the list of supported projects.

I see it did make the recent news.

You must have been too excited to add the project and forgot to update the list. :wink:

Hi,

Well spotted!

It was in the list, but it disappeared between updates due to copies of the site existing on my laptop and my PC.

They basically got out of sync.

All is fixed now (I hope!).

Cheers,

Neil.
