Computer With 512 GPUs Tests Google’s ‘Quantum Supremacy’ Claim

August 4, 2022


Google’s claimed to achieve the coveted quantum supremacy level of computing with its Sycamore system back in 2019. But the problem it used to make the claim has just been solved by today’s accelerator of choice — the GPU. As reported by Science, researchers in China have recently managed to solve the same computational problem that led Google to claim the title, despite being equipped with “just” 512 GPUs, which supercharged some smart changes to the original algorithm. The whole concept of quantum supremacy, however, refers to the moment when a quantum computer solves a problem that would be impossible for a classical computer to do.
