Default Computer model pinpoints prime materials for efficient carbon capture

http://newscenter.berkeley.edu/2012/...arbon-capture/

It's not an open DC project (guess they didn't need the extra computational capability?), but it is a usage of GPUs to solve scientific problems.

Edit: PS. I've been trying for the last few hours to get to boinc.berkeley.edu, and it seems to be down?
Was planning on re-installing BOINC onto my Q9300.

A whooping decrease in crunching times for their material simulations!
I wonder how many GPU's they use?

Thx Larry, an interesting read
