IPD at Audacious

Protein design receiver $45 milion in founding through The Audacious Project:
The core of this plan is to make IPD the “Bell Labs of Protein Design.” During its heyday in the 1950s, Bell Labs drove the innovations that laid the foundations of the modern digital era.The collaborative environment of Bell Labs attracted top research talent and made it it a hotbed of scientific discovery and technological achievement. Just as Bell Labs helped create the digital revolution, the Institute for Protein Design will work to fuel the protein design revolution. By expanding the Institute, doubling its faculty and training a new generation of scientists, IPD will accelerate the pace of discovery and dissemination of new protein technology

Good stuff. I hope this means they will send us a wider variety of work and more of it. I will upgrade my machines as needed.

And more "efficent" apps - aka optimizations :-P

The Ryzen 3000 looks interesting. It will have better double precision at least; maybe better AVX2?
I hope someone at Rosetta is looking into it.

You are too ambitious!
I'm satisfied with the sse2 (p.s. SSE2 was released for first time in 2000 from Intel and 2003 from Amd, 16 years ago!!) and it's used in a lot of projects (Tn-grid, Seti, Lhc, etc).
Boinc supports detecting Sse2 (on Windows) since release 6.10.19 (May 2010), so it's not a boinc's infrastructure issue.
But this is an old story

SSE2 is fine. I just want them to feel guilty, that's all.

If you are interested, there is a very good thread on this argument (with rsj5 clarification on optimization)

Yes, that is interesting. And the video is useful.
Things have changed since my Fortran days.
