09.29.2006 - Stanford University's Folding@home uses ATI stream computing to squeeze three years worth of disease research into just one month

View ATi-press related news. MARKHAM, ONTARIO, Sep 29, 2006 (CCNMatthews via COMTEX News Network) -- ATI Technologies Inc. (TSX:ATY)(NASDAQ:ATYT) today announced that Stanford University has released software to utilize ATI processors for the Stanford's Folding@home distributed computing project, yielding an enormous increase in the speed of disease research. By enabling Folding@home participants to make use of the powerful processing architectures found in ATI Radeon® X1900 and Radeon® X1950 graphics cards, Stanford expects to gain new capabilities that have never been possible before, allowing researchers to address questions that were previously considered impossible to tackle computationally.(1) With this new processing power now tapped, researchers expect to discover even more about the science of protein folding and folding-related diseases, with potentially dramatic effect for studies into Alzheimer's, cancer, Huntington's and Parkinson's diseases among others.
