IBM introduced a 433-cubic quantum processor
IBM at the Quantum Summit 2022 event announced the OSPREY quantum processor containing 433 cubes. This writes Reuters.
According to representatives of the technical gigant, classic bits can be able to be either units or zero. In contrast, cubes exist in a complex combination of both provisions using the fundamental quantum nature of matter at subatum levels.
“Quantum computers offer the possibility of a significant increase in computing power, which can be used for complex calculations in the tasks of artificial intelligence, the search for new drugs and research in the field of energy,” the press release said.
The company noted that OSPREY contains three times more cubes than last year Eagle model: 433 and 127, respectively.
By 2025, IBM plans to create a system with more than 4,000 quantum bits. Before that, the company intends to develop two more processors:
- Condor for 1121 cubes in 2023;
- Flamingo for 1386 cubes in 2024.
Tech Gigant also shared the details about Quantum Mainframe Quantum System Two. In it, the company plans to place several functional processors and integrate them into a single system.
The launch of Quantum System Two will take place in 2023.
In total, IBM owns 20 quantum computers around the world. Users can access them through the cloud services of the company.
Recall, in April 2021, IBM presented an open software for British Army Twitter teaching AI on quantum computers.
In May of the same year, technical giant announced the acceleration of quantum calculations 120 times.
