During the Lab Day conference, Intel revealed the latest in quantum computing and other types of computing, as well as announcing the next generation of the Horse Ridge quantum computing chip, which it calls the Horse Ridge Cryogenic Quantum Control Chip completely.
This chip represents a major achievement in the world of technology and quantum computing, developed by Intel based on the first generation of the processor chip.
The chip processes and controls more than one qubit – a quantum bit or a quantum bit – together, which is a major leap in this sector.
Usually, qubits are divided into two different types: One is superconducting qubit, the other is silicon qubits – the kind that Intel is focusing on in developing its new processor chip, moving away from the first kind that companies like IBM and Google are taking as a pathway to work on as a transistor.
Horse Ridge II quantum computing chip adds 100 million transistors
Intel built the second-generation Horse Ridge processor chip on a low-power 22nm FinFET technology that can operate at temperatures up to 4 degrees above absolute zero. The chip contains about 100 million transistors together, making it superior to any other chip.
Intel says it aims to develop quantum computers and systems, and these computers need processing technologies and chips, qubits management, and connected algorithms.
Quantum computing represents the future of technology, as it can solve millions of steps in operations on ordinary computers in just one step.
That is, what this computing can offer in the future that no supercomputer in the world can present to scientists and users.
It is reported that Intel has also announced improvements to the Loihi neural computing chip and strengthened its presence in this sector with new technologies.
