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

•, 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.
