Is Folding@home optimized for Altivec ? if not, is there any @home project that use Altivec units of the G4 ?

It's far from being optimal in any sense. The problem is with the compilers available to the developers.

My guess is that there's scope for a 300-400% speedup. The client at the moment is painfully slow.
