PC Gamers can now use their CPUs and GPUs via Folding@Home in order to fight against Coronavirus

As you may already know, WHO has declared the Coronavirus outbreak a pandemic. And while it will take a while until there is a vaccine, PC gamers can now use their PC systems in order to fight against this disease.

We usually don’t share this kind of news but let’s be honest here; this affects each and every one of us. A lot of countries are under quarantine as we speak. So yeah, this is the least we can do at this point.

All you have to do is download Folding@Home from here. Once you’ve installed it, you can setup a new identity and use this Team Number “237039” which puts priority to the Coronavirus. Below you can find the current Corona projects.

  • 11741: Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19 causing virus) receptor binding domain in complex with human receptor ACE2.
  • 11746: Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19 causing virus) receptor binding domain in complex with human receptor ACE2 (alternative structure to 11741).
  • 11742: Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19 causing virus) protease in complex with an inhibitor.
  • 11743: Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19 causing virus) protease – potential drug target.
  • 11744: Coronavirus SARS-CoV (SARS causing virus) receptor binding domain trapped by a SARS-CoV S230 antibody.
  • 11745: Coronavirus SARS-CoV (SARS causing virus) receptor binding domain mutated to the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19 causing virus) trapped by a SARS-CoV S230 antibody.

Lastly, stay safe everyone!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
