chip giant revealed 49 qubit superconducting quantum chips at CES. Both Google and IBM are developing their own quantum computing systems. Intel’s quantum chip code-named Tangle Lake. “From a scientific standpoint, 50 or so qubits are in a very interesting position because you have reached a point where the quantum behavior of a chip cannot be fully predicted or simulated,” said Michael Mayberry, vice president of the company and director of the Intel Laboratory. IBM announced last November that it had built a prototype of 50 qubits, and Google has previously said it plans to implement 49 quantum-bit superconducting quantum chips by the end of last year. But business promises to implement quantum chips have a long way to go. Intel’s roadmap shows the researchers want to complete the 1000 qubit system within 5-7 years. Experts believe that a quantum computer from a commercial point of view requires at least 1 million qubits to be available.
