IBM plans to debut an 1121 qubit quantum processor in 2023. Codenamed Condor, Big Blue thinks of it “as an inflection point, a milestone that marks our ability to implement error correction and scale up our devices, while simultaneously complex enough to explore potential quantum advantages — problems that we can solve more efficiently on a quantum computer than on the world’s best supercomputers,” IBM Fellow and Vice President Jay Gambetta writes in a blog. Long-term, Big Blue plans to go beyond a million qubits.
