Google’s Quantum Computer Is About 158 Million Times Faster Than the World’s Fastest Supercomputer

Vulnerable chip is strongly cooled Google’s quantum computer, Sycamore, and IBM’s, IBM Q System One, also process data using microchips. In 200 seconds, the machine performed a mathematically designed calculation so complex that it would take the world’s most powerful supercomputer, IBM’s Summit, 10,000 years to do it. In 2012, theoretical physicist John Preskill came up with a formulation of quantum supremacy, the superiority of quantum computers. The quantum computer, which can measure and analyse the smallest components of the universe, may shed new light on black holes. Whether the quantum computer will get its final breakthrough at Microsoft, Google, IBM or a fourth party is impossible to predict. Qubits can be everywhere at once The computing power of the quantum computer comes from so-called quantum bits, abbreviated to qubits. Seven years later, in autumn 2019, Googles quantum computer Sycamore reached this milestone.
