SAN FRANCISCO--Intel has built a prototype of a processor with 80 cores that can perform a trillion floating-point operations per second.

CEO Paul Otellini held up a silicon wafer with the prototype chips before several thousand attendees at the Intel Developer Forum here Tuesday. The chips are capable of exchanging data at a terabyte a second, Otellini said during a keynote speech.

No, Intel processors can't run Crysis...
But They've had the newest AMD CPU's Running crysis ;)
(Not even joking, AMD's new CPU's have so much raw power, that they can emulate the GPU to play the game)

And if you know the differences between CPU and GPU architecture, you know it's a super, SUPER tall order to actually do that!
Hank Azaria not playing Apu on the Simpsons will make the role as irrelevant as the Simpsons has been as a series since 1999!
