Yes, if an infinite number of finite computations are run simultaneously on 
a system with a finite number of physical states.

So if I have a system with finite number of physical states, it will take a 
matching finite number of (base)-computations leaving an infinite number 
untreated. Out of them I can take a deduction for muiltiplying the finite 
number of physical states by the finite number of the base-states to get to 
the total number of computability on that system in parallel  - still a 
finite number. I still have an infinite number of unbtreated cases left.
Damn that infinite! Cantor's curse.
