Questions tagged [quantum-volume]

Roughly speaking, quantum volume measures the worth of quantum computing hardware by the square of the maximum depth of quantum computations it permits but limits its value to the square of the qubits involved. This limit is justified by wanting to forestall "gaming" of the system by optimizing towards few qubits. (https://quantumcomputing.stackexchange.com/q/3985)

What use cases are there for 127 qubit QPUs?

IBM have recently announced their 127 qubit Eagle processor. Other approaches, such as Rydberg arrays, have now 256 qubits, as for example in QuEra's QPU QPU. While these are without a doubt ...

Is it possible to set quantum volume in IBM Quantum simulator?

A quantum volume serves as a metric of a quantum processor quality. So far, IBM Quantum provides processors with quantum volume up to 128. Freely accessbile processors have QV up to 32. A user using ...

Why is the quantum volume vastly greater than the number of qubits squared?

According to Wikipedia, the Honeywell computer has quantum volume ("QV") equal to 1024 and has 10 qubits. QV should not be more than $n^2$ squared, i.e. 100. Is this any math error? Are the ...

Is there a practical architecture-independent benchmark suitable for adversarial proof of quantum supremacy?

Recent quantum supremacy claims rely, among other things, on extrapolation, which motivates the question in the title, where the word "adversarial" is added to exclude such extrapolation-...
