quantum cpus, I will create a topic in the tech discussion explaining them if you like, as they would be offtopic and take up a lot of posts

Suffice it to say, anything created at the "Quantum" level, would be very, very, small.

I wonder what effect quatum processing would have on physics? Think of it, a "Quantum" Physics chip on a Graphics card? :D

i remember reading somehwhere that graphics card tech is improving faster than CPUs, so that many games are limited to the cpu speed. i just cant wait till vista comes out. thats when im getting a new system.

true, quantum processors use special ions called q-bits, each q-bit can be in any of four states, 00, 01, 10, 11, in other words they each store two bits, because of some special qualities of q-bits, one operation can be perormed on an almost limitless number of q-bits as fast as if it was only being performed on one, so 1gig of data could be scanned for a pattern in the same amount of time as it takes to scan 1bit, also, because of the way quantum chips use the spin of particles to store data, if you add one q-bit to the matrix, you double the capacity, and of course processing power. They also require <10watts of power to operate, and produce <1watt of heat. Imagine a quantum graphics card, you would be able to load every game file and texture into a virtually unlimited data array, located right on the gpu, and the gpu would be able to calculate the path of over 100million particles in under a second, while still handling the tasks of the sound card, cpu, hard drive(with all that storage who needs a harddrive, and it would be able to use 1024x AA and AF all the way through landscapes miles long, while calculating pi to 10million more places a millisecond, the future is bright, with the first test quantum chips of about 300q-bits already being tested

They also require <10watts of power to operate, and produce <1watt of heat.

So theoretically a Quatum processor could allow a a cell phone to be created that is as powerfull, if not more powerfull than a modern high-end PC.

With a low power output, and minimal heat, computers should not require all of the loud fans they now come with.

It would be nice to see the advantages soon. However Quantum computing is still a long way off. It is a big transition, and I am sure there are unforseen stumbling blocks waiting. I don't know what to expect though, I was not around for the transitions from Vacuum tubes, to Transistors, and then to Microcircuitry (whatever the correct term is). I'm sure it will be a lot more challenging than the transition from microcircuitry, to the current standard. Nanocircuitry I believe.

Technically, the transistor gave way to the integrated circuit which is where we're still at. Quantum computing has been fingered as the next "logical" step, but nobody's quite figured out how to do anything practical with it yet.

Omg im stunned about Ageia PhysX, watch this High-Def in-game footage of Cell Factor: Combat Training.

Download Here

I mean holy freakin cow, what we saw in Crysis is like shit compared to this stuff. Im so amazed :O.

If your so lucky to actually own a Ageia PhysX you can actually download a demo of the game _HERE_

If the download is down, heres some _mirrors_

currently all of the reaserch has one goal, to make it practical, they have started handing out to labs all over the country sample quantum cpu's, supported by a custum distribution of linux, these quantum chips have the performance of a standard pentium 4 at about 2.2ghz, and they use miniscule amounts over power. Because it would not be practical to introduce a new chip that performed worse than older ones, they are trying to tweak the way they hold q-bits within the cpu to allow many more, they already made the leap from 1, each being in its own container, to about 300, they are now trying to hit 1000, or in other words make them 2^700 times more powerful
