China building $145 million superconducting computer that is up to 1000 times more energy efficient

• https://www.nextbigfuture.com, brian wang

It will use supercooled circuits made of superconducting materials. It will use 40 to 1000 times less energy.

The plan is to make a prototype of the machine as early as 2022.

It should be able to achieve processor speeds of 770 gigahertz or higher versus current commercial processor at 5 Ghz.

This will not be a quantum computer.

Xlichip, an electronics company based in Shenzhen, is working on superconducting chips. A field-programmable gate array (FPGA), a reconfigurable chip could be used to simulate and test the design of a large-scale, sophisticated integrated circuit.

In 2017, chinese researchers realized mass production of computer chips with 10,000 superconducting junctions.
