All of this is in preparation for the 433-qubit Osprey system in 2022, to be followed by 1,121-qubit Condor processor in 2023. This will require larger cooling systems. The 3.3 x 2m (10 x 6ft) “super-fridge,” internally codenamed “Goldeneye,” is designed with a million-qubit system in mind.
“We think of Condor 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,” said Gambetta.
