Quantum computing gets closer with Intel’s Tangle Lake CPU

Kevin Jacoby's picture

Quantum computing is coming. Slowly. But it’s coming, and that’s a big deal.

At CES this year Intel unveiled the new “Tangle Lake” superconducting quantum test chip. The processor is just the size of a quarter, yet it holds a total of 49 quantum bits (qubits). That’s up from Intel’s previous record of 17 qubits on a single chip, which was released just two months ago.

Maybe quantum computing isn’t moving so slowly, after all.

Wearables: Where’s the growth? Just about everywhere

Kevin Jacoby's picture

The wearables market is growing fast.

How fast? More than 310 million wearable devices will be sold worldwide this year, predicts research firm Gartner. Assuming that’s correct, it will mark an increase over last year of nearly 17%.

That’s plenty fast. And looking ahead, industry analysts see more of the same. They predict that sales of wearables will continue to increase year-over-year for the foreseeable future.

SATA, introduced back in 2000, quickly became the gold standard for computer bus interfacing. Though the world is now moving on to newer solutions — especially the PCIe/NVMe protocol — many data centers still rely on this turn-of-the-century mainstay.
