ive read that folding is more floating point based than seti is so i was wondering if anyone had ever considered putting together a dec alpha system for that purpose? you can find them relativly cheap on ebay and elsewhere and a 500 mhz alpha scores better than the fastest amd or intel cpus out at the moment in the SPECfpu benchmarks. it wouldnt be that difficult to put a 4 way alpha system to work floding if they make a version of the software for it. does anyone know iof they do bc id hate to waste such an awesome computer.
