Yesterday, IBM announced it’s reached a new quantum computing milestone, hitting its highest Quantum Volume to date.

Using a 27-qubit client-deployed system, IBM achieved a Quantum Volume of 64.

Quantum Volume is a metric that determines how powerful a quantum computer is. It measures the length and complexity of quantum circuits, the building blocks of quantum applications. Just two months ago, Honeywell similarly announced it had a quantum computer running client jobs with a Quantum Volume of 64. Honeywell reached the milestone with just a 6-qubit system.
