BEIJING, 3 may — RIA Novosti, Ivan Bulatov. Chinese scientists have built a new quantum computer, which is called the first of its kind in the world, reports Xinhua news Agency.
Chinese scientists established a quantum computing machine is many times greater than conventional computers.
The prototype was up to 100 times faster than the first electronic digital General purpose computer, the ENIAC (ENIAC). The new machines are built on the use of single photons.
Earlier media reported that China develop a prototype of a supercomputer with a performance one exaflops (flops is the unit used to measure the performance of computers; one exaflops — ten in the 18-th degree of computational operations per second). The engineers promised to submit it by the end of 2017.
