Introducing Microsoft's Windows Quantum

It takes full advantage of your quantum processing needs with such programs as quantum minesweeper and quantum calculator.

All programs are guaranteed to have a less than 90% crash rating, that's right, you will have less than 90% of your time with your computer completely useless!


(though microsoft and microsofts partners claim to take full advantage of your quantum processing needs, some exceptions may be made so that 95% of your clock cycles are wasted in useless and moronic code. Upgrades will correct this issue a little, for a fee.)

Thats not all! For an extra $250 (US) you can have one free upgrade.
(cost does not cover the technical support required to repair your system after upgrading.)

Buy Microsoft's Windows Quantum, cause we can't afford one more person switching to Linux.

LOL...I would think Windows Quantum support techs would be highly paid physicists therefor support costs and os costs would be completely ridiculous. Service Pack 2 would be that critical photonic spin up angular doohicky update that was overlooked in SP1...

I see no announcement by IBM. What gives?

I'm having trouble digging up an official source my own self.


I did find a ton of articles and such from IBM on their ongoing research and successes in this area of science, but have yet to locate an IBM press release that explicitly mentions what the OPs source talks about.

Has anyone else been able to confirm this somehow?

i can imagine not needing any gpu at all, and getting a thousand frames per second at 8,000 by 6,000 resolution.... while playing games 100 times better looking than crysis........


hm....... ( is this kid a gamer? i dont know. lol )

Can you imagine the size of the screen you would need for a resolution of 8,000 by 6,000? Can you say.....70 or 80 inch screen?

Doesn't sound like a problem to me!
The bigger, the better!

Or you just have a greater pixel density in a smaller screen


On the computer itself, it wouldn't surprise me if the US government snapped it up once the project got past the theoretical level, especially given the amount of data they need to monitor and process..

Can I just add that Gigahertz has got little to do with the speed of a processor. All it is, is how many cycles it does per second. What matters is what it does in those cycles that matters.

I reckon it's possible to make a 500ghz computer that slower than a 3ghz P4.

EDIT: Guys stop bashing Vista. If you don't like it do yourself a favour and go get OS X. It's possible to run it on a normal PC.

You are touching on the long running Speed vs. Power debate that has been raging for years in the semiconductor industry. The two values represent a sort of ratio: How much the CPU can do per cycle, to how many cycles it can do per second.

A faster chip, that can only bite off small pieces of data at a time would evenly compare to a slower chip that can bite off much larger chunks each cycle.

Some guys use the bicycle analogy to describe this. Speed (Ghz) is how fast you are pedaling. Power (architecture) is how hard you are pedalling. The combination of the two will determine how quickly you can pedal up a steep hill.

Very true. Matter of fact, MACs are even being built on PC architecture these days. And as of OSX, the MAC operating system is Unix based.

You might also consider Ubuntu Linux. Its a great Debian based distro, that anybody can use. Not to mention it's free! I run Windows, OSX, and Ubuntu all at the same time. (Running out of Gnome+Beryl+VMware
) Now days, you can even get a new Dell with Ubuntu instead of Windows. I still prefer to build my own, though.


Isn't it great to have choices?

Amen Damajickninja


I love Ubuntu (Feisty Fawn) and Win XP SP2...I can go the dual boot route or invoke windoze in linux thru VM ware...

Why wouldnt anyone have a go at it ?


Peace

I have a friend that does R&D at IBM near Baltimore,
guess what he has been working on since 2002... new processors...
well as he told it to me: nano-technology one processor will have the power of 10000 Pentium 1 processors and the processor will contain an os operating system which cuts Microsoft out of the os game and puts them into the application game.

supposedly this processor will be able to use existing computer architecture, and still use 133 isa as well


we will see

Rod Logic computers are more likely to be developed first, and I also have friends working for IBM and they have heard nothing about this. They aren't in R&D but they keep in touch with those peeps cuz they are nerds like me. They say IBM has been investing heavily in Rod Logic research lately(think Punch Cards except on the Nanoscale) but have not heard anything about their Quantum Computing research efforts. When a breakthrough happens, we'll all know soon enough anyways.

Ill believe it when I see it.... this sounds too good to be true. And will the shadow government really allow this beast of computer to be used by civilians to break codes and such?

Maybe they already have them at the NSA.

I know for a fact that about 4 or 5 years ago big brother had small cube's that were used as hd's for the eschleon system.. I thought my friend was yanking my chain at the time, but he defiantly wasn't. I'm curious what Ibm is using for data bus paths and if there designing motherboards with real crystal's on them to serve routing functions, and logic gates, real interesting stuff.

This puts a whole new light on all those new age "crystal freaks" that used to talk about how crystals can store consciousness.

The story linked in the OP is over-hyped at least. IBM do lots of very good work in quantum computing, but they're nowhere near introducing a QC chip. No-one has built anything beyond a toy quantum computer yet. D-wave claim to have made a small advance, but it looks like they're full of #. Even if they're not, their wildest claims are still far, far short of a practical QC device.

Yea your right but they still probably never saw it from a slowed down photon point of view like us... I'm guessing maybe someone knew of the tech down the line and used it in "teachings" to mystify others. Even a short while ago that kinda talk was = to nonsense and wishful thinking. Ancient history needs to be read in a different manner and i cant imagine what we would find.
