At the start of this month we kicked off a week-long competition with our frenemies over at Tom’s Hardware. Striving to see which technology website was superior, our respective distributed computing teams held a race in the popular Folding @ Home project to amass the largest number of points over a one-week period. And now that the race week has come to a close, the final results are in.
Folding@Home Race Results
As of end of the race, Team AnandTech has amassed 296 million points, besting Tom’s Hardware by nearly 40%. And while it took a day or so for both teams to get up to speed, as it turns out it was never even close.
