    The First Time I completed Mass Effect I new that's how our world will develop, I bet IBM will find some Prothen Technology which will jump them hundred's of years into researching and get this kind of processing power working in the next 10 years.

    Just sayin...

    IBM has never lost that branch of research and development. Their projects are quite huge and interesting for they'll never target directly consumers like Intel does. Intel is fine and eventually they'll have to think something ahead shrinking transistors, so quantum processors or analog processors are kind of a more viable future roadmap for both AMD and Intel.
  7. Would it be able to run notepad smoothly?

    How would Crysis run?

    Simple. It would both run perfectly and not run at all, simultaneously.

    Every time you shoot an enemy the game splits the screen into all the possible outcomes including one where the enemy materializes next to you and bites your head off and then you die.. for real.

    In other news, I am excited about new developments like this. For too long now we've only seen tiny improvements here and there coupled by major price hikes for small improvements.

    The industry needs a "game changer" like this!

    well said! :p
  14. With a normal cpu and to much overclock you get overheat, what would happen with to much overclock on this?, maybe it could lead to a time space paradox where your cpu transform into a bunny and you have to pursue it and turn it off, or the black hole than destroy the earh. Very exiting lol

    But can it run Crysis?
  17. D-wave and Canada already won the QC race. First commercial quantum computer. IBM is behind by a long shot.

    You can own one too
