The most powerful quantum computer in the world exists as NASA website reports. Journalists of The Financial Times acknowledged the text about its creation. However, the report was soon deleted.
Created within the walls of Google the quantum processor was able to make calculations in 3 minutes and 20 seconds, which IBM's Summit supercomputer would take 10,000 years.
For now, Google's processor is not able to do calculations in parallel - only one operation at a time. Moreover, the report notes that it would take a while before quantum computers can solve practical problems.
The head of the quantum hardware at Intel, James Clark, pointed out this achievement of Google as an essential event in the development of quantum computing. He also noted that the creation of a commercially viable quantum computer would give a boost to technology in many ways.
But the reason why NASA removed the report from the website is yet unknown. Google declined to leave any comments after the removal of the statement.
