Nvidia and Stanford finalizing Folding@Home client for GeForce GPUs
 
In what can only be described as 'a long time coming', it appears that Nvidia graphics card owners are about to get their own F@H client. Whilst ATI has enjoyed their own GPU client for some time now, it's nice to see Nvidia GPU's finally receive support. According to our source, the Folding@Home for Nvidia CUDA-capable graphics cards (GeForce 8 and above) should become available next week. The codename for this client is GPU2/NVIDIA. The GPU1 client was retired, while GPU2 client will continue to be updated for both Nvidia and ATI cards.
 
The unveiling of the client is set for the next week as part of the launch of Nvidia’s GT200 GPU series. Owning such a card will have its benefits in Folding@Home and will outrun Radeon 3870 cards. The new GeForce cards are expected to hit more than 650 nanoseconds of protein simulation in a single day, while the Radeon HD 3870 is stuck at about 170 ns. The Playstation 3 is able to produce "only" 100 ns of simulation, while a quad-core CPU creates an output of just four nanoseconds. For those who are keeping count: The GeForce GPU will be about 163 times faster than a quad-core processor in this specific application.
 
Woohoo I'm excited. If you're as happy as I am about the GPU2/Nvidia client then feel free to tell us about it in our forum

Yeah, just thought of that when I clicked the link... They must have checked the performance before slapping such a hefty price tag on them though.
