Rosetta crosses one Petaflop of computational power. A Petaflop is 1,000 Teraflops. A Teraflop is one trillion floating-point operations per second.

Put another way: the world’s top 10 supercomputers can do in an afternoon what Rosetta@home does in a year…

Pretty sure it crossed 2000 TeraFLOPS at some point on the Server Status section in the homepage but lots of that computational power has probably stopped contributing. Maybe not everyone follows Twitter for updates?

BUT the cost is FAR different for the people running the tasks, for the Scientists wanting results the super computers costs are out of reach.

Absolutely. But it seems reasonable to assume that if any of the research being done on Rosetta@home showed any genuine promise, funding for some time on a super would be made available. While that is indeed beyond the means of a bunch of well-intentioned postgrads in academic laboratories, I imagine it’s the kind of money any of the big philanthropic foundations could lose down the back of the sofa without worrying about…

BakerLab (the mantainer of Rosetta@Home) has his own cluster and has access to external HPC systems.
It's not only Rosetta@Home resources.

An example: BakerLab and TACC

If it had any genuine promise... there would be scores of universities and research labs throughout the world using it. (click where it says "click to show the list of institutions").

At the end, 5 milions.
For the next 5 milions i need more powerful hw

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

More hardware means higher electric bills too!!

That's not completely true.
My main pc is a dual Intel Xeon L5640 that produces 55 GFlops with 120W
A simple Ryzen 3700X produces 98 GFlops with 65W

True but tecnically that's not 'more' hardware, that would be 'replacing' hardware with better hardware.
'More' hardware would be adding the Ryzen to the existing fleet of computers and that WOULD mean higher electricity costs.
Believe me I have 20 pc's here at home now and the costs can be HIGH!!!

You're right.

(i will replace my hw)

Two thumbs up!!!

An idea would be to offer your old hardware to someone on your Team that could then upgrade, or add too, their own collection of hardware. I've done that with alot of the parts that I upgraded from my own pc's.
