Re: can it run Crysis?

Companies buy bulk cheap SoC cpus that be programmed to cope with a large raft of that company's embedded processing needs. If you can buy 10,000 or 100,000 of them at 10p each and they happen to have enough grunt to run something that, when it came out, would run on a 486, then that's just the way it is.

Moore's law doesn't just move the top end of the processing power along.
