HIV structure cracked using GPU-based simulations

ExtremeTech- This week, a new paper described how researchers pieced together the entire molecular structure of the protein shell of the HIV virus using GPU-based simulations. This remarkable achievement not only paves the way for new therapeutic approaches to AIDs, but establishes GPUs as franchise players in molecular simulation.

That's great, but this mean only that they have more data that could potentially lead to better treatment of the disease.

GPU's now have more computing power than CPU's in advanced mathematics calculations. Bet ya didn't know that.

Whats more GPU's if used together pose a massive threat to passwords as they can work millions of times faster than CPU's in brute force attacks.

CPUs these days are still relevant just because of pure speed and nothing more but with the passing of time the chip will become redundant because GPUs alone will be able to handle the workload and much more.

Its already happen. GPU's take on the immense calculations for displaying top end graphics with all the effects. There's a lot to think about.

best way to stop hiv/aids is to stop sleeping around with randoms you dont trust, care about or love and use protection. also dont go touching monkeys in weird places.

the thing that most people don't know and most doctors don't want you to know, that HIV is RNA virus and there is no any antibiotic work against RNA most of antibiotic work against DNA. AND the HIV only can be active inside the limphocite in the form of RNA, and un-active inside serum in the form of protein shell/capsule and it may not attack you're immune fore years and no body know way.

sorry i mean lymphocyte and not limphocite my bad.
