Quantum computers may not be the answer

Top boffins who have been looking under the bonnet of Quantum computers are starting to think that they may not be the future of computing. David Gross at the Institute for Mathematical Physics in Braunschweig, Germany, states that most quantum states are too entangled to be of any use as a computer.

The story is too old to be commented.

much like parallelism, except you would re-direct the randomness as, let's say, the "innate math" to create particle effects or smoke or small bumps on rendered skin without using any "conscious" processing power. I also thought you could possibly even store the random events for usage at a later date.

Well, I guess I need to read a little more about it.

Yeah, I had much hope for quantum processing as the next step once we reach the physical limit of matter for making our current chips.
Which is quite soon btw:

If these boffins are correct, then that really sucks :(.

Actually, research into graphene transistors may extend the lifetime of current CPU designs by quite a bit: http://physicsworld.com/cws...

IBM researchers reckon they could construct a gate of length 50nm that comfortably operates over 1thz.

I said the physical limit of matter. Graphene falls under the catagory of "matter" lol. I know all to well about graphene and carbon nanotubes. Around the 11nm stage is working on that scale. Graphene is merely proposed because current CMOS tech and materials can't really hold up very well at 16nm and below.

I'm talking about once we have chips made of graphene, carbon nanotubes and custom molecular structures. You can't really go any smaller than molecules/atoms, lol. (Atleast not with our current understanding of physics. But there's already been a molecular logic gate .
