PS3 and distributed computing

Its exciting to see that the number of PS3 clients on Folding@Home is increasing. A few in europe has activated their clients, but since its release day in europe I bet that most of the new owners want to test their games first.

At this moment 11172 PS3 CPUs has been registered at Standford, the stats were updated 11:45 today. Together, the PS3 CPUs reports a total of 251 TFlops, not bad. I’m a bit curious about the fact that 172532 reported CPUs using Windows report a total of 151 TFlops. Hmmm

I bet the number is 50000 next monday.
