Quantum Computing

Quantum computing taps nature’s operating system, quantum mechanics, to unlock exponential computer performance.

Classical computing calculates with transistors that represent either 0 or 1: they scale linearly with Moore’s law. Quantum computing calculates with qubits, which can represent 0 and 1 simultaneously. Power scales exponentially in proportion to the number of entangled qubits.

Quantum will attack the most complex problems: quantum simulations in molecular chemistry, optimization, or prime factorization. Factoring a 2,048-bit prime number with a supercomputer takes about one trillion years. With quantum, about one minute.

Quantum and Climate

Meeting the 2050 net-zero emissions goal that countries require is only possible with breakthrough advances in climate technology. Today’s supercomputers are unable to solve many of these challenges.


Quantum computing will change the game in helping develop breakthrough climate technologies. McKinsey & Co believes quantum computing can revolutionize the fight against climate change, transforming the technologies and economics of decarbonization and becoming a major factor in limiting global warming to the target temperature of 1.5°C.

Computers have always advanced through silicon. Quantum computers will be no different.

We have already proven three generations of quantum silicon, software, and hardware. By integrating entire quantum systems onto a single chip, we produce quantum computers with unmatched performance and efficiency, all in a breakthrough compact form factor.
