...run on a lot of cards including, but not limited to, HD3k series, and a lot of nvidias. And they dont even use opencl, but they still CAN use the gpu for computing.

I know they don't do double sha-256 rounds, but they sure do simulate protein folding, which is a bit more complex then your average double sha round.

F@H, like most scientific workloads, uses floating point math. Bitcoin uses integer math.

Didn´t know that, thanks for sharing. So, you´re telling that all supercomputers the univ. and government agencies have can´t use their massive power to hash that much. Good news for me, jaja

It means they need about eight or nine of their NVIDIA GPUs to match one otherwise comparable AMD GPU.
