Of course its in "the future"; everything is. But they don't have video card companies "on the run".
Trillions of particles require at least trillions of bytes (probably 3x more than that if you want a high range in each spatial dimension). And then you'd need multi-petaflops of processing power (probably even exaflops) to do any operations on that many particles at once.
That sorta of hardware is
