Another success for Nvidia. Folding @ Home distributed computing network gets CUDA support

It looks like the Folding @ Home distributed computing network is waiting for another leap in performance. Recall that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the total network performance this year began to grow rapidly, and already in April exceeded 2.4 exaflops, which is more than the performance of all TOP500 supercomputers.

And today the Folding @ Home network has received Nvidia CUDA support. This means that various video cards of the company will become more productive by an amount from 5-6% to 60% or more. In the diagram below, you can see that most adapters will gain around 20%.

This is not to say that this is a lot, but in absolute terms, the performance of the entire Folding @ Home network will clearly increase quite impressively. The press release also notes that projects based on the OpenMM toolkit have received CUDA support.
