Origin PC and Corsair are calling all PC gamers and users around the world to participate in the initiative to fight Coronavirus. Called Folding@Home, this initiative will use your PC to help scientist to simulate the dynamics of Coronavirus proteins, this would greatly help doctors to find a cure to the disease that has killed thousands
We are working like mad to start simulations of COVID-19 proteins. The enthusiastic response to our effort has been tremendous and has sometimes emptied our queues. This is a great “problem” to have as there is no end to the valuable science we can do, its just a matter of giving us some time to get more running.
This initiative is not new, it has existed for quite a while, basically, PC owners donate their hardware to the benefit of science. Origin PC and Corsair employees are currently taking part in the initiative, contributing their PC power to the cause, the objective is to encourage gamers who often have a very powerful and capable hardware.
The ORIGIN PC team is also giving customers the option to have the Folding@Home application preinstalled on their ORIGIN PC system before shipping.
“Some of the most powerful equipment that the general public has access to is gaming PCs. Let’s all donate some of that power and put our high-performance PCs to work,” said Kevin Wasielewski, ORIGIN PC CEO and co-founder. “High-performance gaming PCs are capable of performing a lot of operations very quickly, which makes them perfect for running the many operations required to simulate the complex environments inside human cells. ORIGIN PC is supporting Folding@Home, and we are asking that you do too. Please join our Folding@Home team and donate unused PC power to accelerate the research of COVID-19.”
