The [email protected] network is now running with over an ExaFLOP of distributed computational performance. That’s more than 5x the theoretical peak operations per second of the world’s fastest supercomputer, ORNL’s Summit—or equivalent to over 150,000 RTX 2060s strapped together, y’know, just to properly quantify it for us PC gaming folk.

[email protected] is an amorphous mass of interconnected PC and server racks kindly donated by the public and private companies. It’s based out of Washington University, and a number of research labs across the globe ensure it’s kept busy and working on incredibly important and up-to-date simulations. It’s currently tasked with combating some of the world’s prevailing diseases and viruses, including the new coronavirus, via huge quantities of simulations (pictured above).
