Folding GPU client is on the way for Nvidia cards


— 6:00 AM on May 23, 2008

Stanford University has been releasing GPU clients for AMD graphics cards for some time now, and there's even a GPU2 client in the works (the beta is available here). Somewhat surprisingly, though, Stanford has yet to release a GPU client that can harness the computing power of Nvidia's latest and greatest graphics processors.

That will all change soon; according to PC Perspective, Folding@home project head Vijay Pande made an appearance at an Nvidia meeting in San Jose, California to show an Nvidia version of the GPU client. PC Per says the software was shown running on an unannounced Nvidia product, so details are sparse for the time being. However, the Nvidia-compatible client looks to be on the way regardless.
