Which is the world’s most powerful computer?

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory recently unveiled its Summit computer as the world’s most powerful and smartest scientific supercomputer. It has a peak performance of 200,000 trillion calculations per second, or 200 petaflops.

As soon as we get our first Quantum computers, computing will change forever. ?

Yes.

However, that would probably be the end of the road as well.

Hmm. I think the engineers and researchers are closer than ever. But why'd it be the end of road?

Because being a quantum computer, it may be impossible to get the hardware any smaller.

... they were right.

Quantum computing is happening , but to get it to a large scale i think it takes good amount of time.

If you go deep into how its working, they are cooling the hardware(some part of it) to 0.02 Kelvin and sending instructions, so it takes time. But for sure once we get that all our current super computers look obsolete.

And adding to this - IBM has very good videos on explaining how it works , and also they are also providing access to us to see how it works!
