IBM unveils 2-nanometre chip technology for faster computing, Technology News

194166 untitled design 42
For decades, each generation of computer chips got faster and more power-efficient because their most basic building blocks, called transistors, got smaller. The pace of those improvements has slowed, but International Business Machines Corp on Thursday said that silicon has at least one more generational advance in store. IBM introduced what it says is the world's first 2-nanomere chipmaking technology. The technology could be as much as 45% faster than the mainstream 7-nanometre chips in many of today's laptops and phones and up to 75% more power efficient, the company said.

Once a major manufacturer of chips, IBM now outsources its high-volume chip production to Samsung Electronics Co Ltd but...

D-Wave unveils Leap quantum computing service

D Wave unveils Leap quantum computing service
Burnaby, BC’s D-Wave Systems Inc. announced its next-generation quantum computing platform, Leap quantum cloud service, is now open for generally availability. The service includes D-Wave’s latest Advantage quantum system, which boasts more than 5000 qubits and 15-way qubit connectivity. Targeted at business users, the Leap service also includes D-Wave’s new hybrid discrete quadratic model (DQM) solver that it says can run computational problems with up to one million variables. Instead of accepting problems with only binary variables (0 or 1), the DQM solver uses other variable sets (e.g. integers from 1 to 500, or red, yellow and blue), which expands the types of problems that can run on the quantum computer, the company says. Beyond new hardware and software, the company also announced D-Wave Launch, a jump-start program designed to help...
