A quantum processor solved a complex simulation problem 3 million times faster than a conventional computer

A group of researchers has demonstrated that the efficiency of quantum computing can increase as the task becomes more complex, speeding up its solution millions of times..

Scientists from the D-Wave company together with colleagues from Google and the University. Simon Fraser studied simulation speed on one of the new 2000-qubit low-noise processors. The team’s experiment showed that the performance of the system the volume and complexity of calculations has a great influence.

By applying quantum normalization (annealing) to material design problems, researchers have found that in some cases, the answer can be found 3 million times faster than traditional computer algorithms..
