NVIDIA encourages all gaming PC owners to download the Folding@home Folding@home app to use their PC in their spare time to fight coronavirus. The application brings computers together and uses distributed computing power to solve complex computational problems - gaming GPUs are well suited for this purpose.
Application can be turned off at any time and restore the GPU power for games.
Nvidia Folding@home app was developed quite a long time ago. Earlier this week, a new series of projects became available for the app to "mimic the potentially treatable SARS-CoV-2 target proteins (the virus causing COVID-19) and the related SARS-CoV virus."
These projects can help researchers better understand the coronavirus and eventually develop effective treatments.
For those who feel helpless in the face of coronavirus outbreak, participating in projects is a real chance to fight the pandemic, even without medical training.
