Too good to be true. I'm calling fake on this.
Even optical chips haven't debuted, yet.
Powerbook G5 next Tuesday is probably more likely.
QuantumBook G5s Next Tuesday?
forget core2duo, I want 4 of these in my mac pro please.
Sounds like bollocks - but it's a bold move by the company to announce it.
Well if it is indeed true I can't wait to have a dual-quad-core quantum computer. (imagines playing Doom 5 on a quantum computer)
As long as it can run Atari 2600 games I'm happy...
iQuantumPhone the Tuesday after that?
Um ... this would be cool, I guess. Except that, as the blogger suggests, I'm concerned that if I had a consumer quantum computer I would somehow rend space-time irrevocably and trap myself in the 1600s or something.
Not that there aren't ways in which being trapped in the 1600's isn't appealing. But there's this nagging voice telling me that "thedude110's Excellent Adventure" wouldn't involve George Carlin at all ...
Well, the debut came to pass:
But everyone is still dubious!:
Sounds more like a way to get more financial support for the company to continue research.
Which will incinerate Canada.
The hardest thing to believe is how low the power consumption is.
Does anyone have specific numbers on the superior processing power of these chips compared to the current ones?
It's cryogenically cooled so the power consumption had better be really low.
My understanding is that this 16 qubit processor is actually slower than a traditional chip, but they expect it to catch up through scaling.
Just like they expected Motorola and IBM to catch up with the regular chips? I'll believe it when I actually use one
You really cannot compare the current chips to this.
The Company's website says "...are not just faster than conventional computers. They change what computer scientists call the computational scaling of many problems."
Oh yeah this company is right in my city... they previewed it on Tuesday I missed it cause I had a class to teach
