It depends how you look at it. If we wanted, we could already create some now in terms of multiprocessor computers. But I'm taking this as 'will 200Gq processors exist in 2010' and that is probably a no.
Since 2004 I've my own Uplink txt guide. I tried to differ it from the UUG. FInd it on GameFAQs' Uplink FAQ page (going to revise it during the christmas holiday).

Intel already have 80 core processors working. In short, keep up with developments.

No one said they had to be. I doubt Uplink would care about details like public availability.

You never stipulated they had to be available. Perhaps be more concise in future with your polls?

As a long-time Uplink gamer, I remember back during 1.0 thinking how the computers of the future will be when 2010 rolls around....and yet here and now, with the dawn of 2008...idk, lol. Seems kind of disappointing. Oh well, still a good game.

That and I still have the 2019 Blade Runner "spinners" to look forward to driving, haha.
