    I'm not a computer tech. but this article struck my attention when I read it in the paper. It's not as impressive as it sounds but it's only in the beginning stages of development. They're planning to release it in 2012.

    Here's the article if you're interested: http://news.cnet.com/Intel-shows-off-80-co..._3-6158181.html

    Wow, and I thought quad-core was a bit much. 80...hahaha. There's no way any Gradius player can destroy all of them before they run out of quarters!

    This is true. I meant servers as in the term 'server farm' though.
