Let’s all donate some of that power and put our high-performance PCs to work,” said Kevin Wasielewksi, ORIGIN PC CEO and co-founder. “High-performance gaming PCs are capable of performing a lot of operations very quickly, which makes them perfect for running the many operations required to simulate the complex environments inside human cells. ORIGIN PC is supporting Folding@Home, and we are asking that you do too. Please join our Folding@Home team and donate unused PC power to accelerate the research of COVID-19."
