    I'm pretty sure he says unlimited CPUs in the video!

    It looks pretty cool though :)

    Looks like those Crysis vids that were rendered at 0.3fps. Most impressive, if still unrealistic. I'd much rather see one box that wasn't an infinitely existing, none-4th dimensional, indestructable blob than a million unrealistic ones blowing about.

    Looks pretty neat, although by the 3rd perfect lap of the tornado it becomes a little less impressive!

    How about this:

    A cat juggling spheres riding a chicken?

    They could maybe throw into some hand grenades for kicks.

    MMMmm saw this earlier.
    Looking very good, but would rather have the option to buy a midrange graphics card to put into my system, than another processor.... ;)

    The later videos show similar demos being run on Core2 CPUs, so you don't need an i7 to get the same quality effects.

    Thanks for the link Obiwan. The 3000 barrel explosion is pretty sweet!

    err hello bit tech readers... the demo needs to be done with cheesecake to really impress. Cheesecake physics simulation on Core 2 Quads and Duo as well as on i7 please!

    Wow, that barrel demo really shats on the Velocity demo... or does it, try reading the comments from the creator of the barrel demo...

    "This is the first map of the PC game crysis edited by the sandbox2 editor from crytek. It represents not the real framerate of the game with my computer system.

    I made this video just for fun in one day.
    The real framerate without rendering was around 0.2, that means every 5 seconds a picture in some parts, so its not playable in realtime in the year 2008.
    To get this smooth video, i recorded each frame and processed all pictures to a 30 frame/sec. video"

    Not quite as impressive at 0.2 FPS now is it! Makes the Velocity demo look far more impressive.

    No... 0.2 fps... practically not useful.

    i7? Meh! I wonder how well would this scale with a quad socket Operton system? it would only cost around 10k but who cares when we can swirl more boxes! yupeee!
