Cool 1 µs/day folding simulations on desktop!

We're furnishing our lab with workstations powered by water-cooled RTX 2080 ti GPU cards. Water-cooled RTX 2080 ti (temperature below 50℃) is twice faster than air-cooled GTX 1080 ti (temperature over 80℃). See our benchmark page for details.

Earned huge supercomputer time from National Supercomputing Center!

  • 7 Apr 2020: We received 274,000 node-hour Nurion supercomputer time from National Supercomputing Center.
