Sadly, AVG would still run painfully slow on such a massive computer.

But you wouldn't need AVG, it is linux based after all... :)

More importantly, can it run Adventure?

You choose a flightless bird as a mascot and wonder why it doesn't take off?

current cpus can not run crysis only for the sole factor that they can only handle 1 thread per core, or 2 with HT and crysis would need ( if i can remember) 1.5 million threads to run onb a cpu, so yes it can. and note that crysis uses fpc (floating point calculations) to determin points of a polygon, note why early games couldn't render a realistic cirle. the other type of rendering is called ray tracing. this form give you photorealistic quality, like revit for ex. when computers are powerfull enought to do ray tracing in REAL-TIME, that will be a revolution in gaming history. People will laught at crysis.

Kind of a long response to a joke isnt it?  Not to mention, im not sure you read the word LINUX

Not to nitpick, but the article says 100 million CPUs, not 1000 million.
