Although not 100% identical on a molecular level they're both diamonds..


Cubic Zirconia is a diamond simulant, and is only visually similar to a diamond. I doubt that it could be used instead of a real diamond for this computing method, as the smart guys would have already thought of using a material many times less expensive than diamonds.



Cubic Zirconia, as you say is nothing like real diamond apart from looks. But I'm thinking twtankhamwn was perhaps thinking of cultivated CVP or HPHT diamonds .
Which is a more of a 'real-fake' diamond... if that makes sense?
Synthetic Diamond (not CZ)

typically very small and -- though impressive -- cannot yet compete with the speed of larger, traditional computers

being built into dimands? good luck my rich friend

Incredible find. The age of quantum computing is imminent, and there are many things which it will completely revolutionize. One of the more anticipated ones for me is the exponential speed increase in 3d rendering, both biased and unbiased. A quantum processor may allow for modern cinematic quality production rendering in a fraction of the time; say from 24 hours per frame to only a [split]second. For one this would be a godsend for 3d artist, whose workflow would be alleviated from having to wait long periods just to test out lighting/materials. High quality rendering could become essentially real-time & integrated into the process, as opposed to being a stifling factor.

This will spill over into video games (which require high efficiency coding for real-time rendering). Using quantum methods more complex algorithms can be crunched to simulate realistic physics, lighting effects, other phenomena & [I hope] quasi-sentient AI. In essence... this is a technological evolutionary bound. As for how quantum processing ties in with classical computing I'm not completely aware of yet; but it seems we're making great progress in that field as well.

computer parts are pretty cheap actually, and as CPU's and ram get smaller nm-wise, they create less and less heat. By 2022, the end of intels roadmap, a computer will create very very little heat, no need whatsoever for extra cooling devices.

We are most definitely a simulation. I'm going to go ahead and say that we most definitely are. We have developed the quantum, and at some point we will run simulations. If we have, then our simulations will eventually run simulations, and so forth and so on. That means there will be a quantum redundancy to the infinite level...meaning, that we would be more likely than not, a quantum simulation as well...

You have just realized, that on this day...you were not real. Chin up, we may find a way "out" one day. But beyond that, it's wonderful to know that positive emotions may cause positive events to occur based off of programming.



Life is yours to live. Live it to the fullest, and enjoy every aspect of creation. See you at the omega point.

Well... In one thought, I suppose we'll find out if all those things people and movies have said over the years about Debeers monopolizing and manipulating the market to make banks of money on a 'common' industrial rock are true. They won't be controlling diamonds much longer if every computer of the future will need one. Even a group like that isn't big enough to dictate to the whole industrial and commercial world...if those stories are true.


On the other hand...... I hope no one holds it against me that I sincerely hope this fails. Utterly. Perhaps some hidden gremlin in the concept that proves to be beyond our ability to solve for another few decades at least. Let us have the World War I think we all feel coming in one way or another....and THEN look at Quantum Computers as a real thing.


However....while the NSA is building Skynet......BAE systems is building honest to goodness cloaking technology in the real world we all live in.....and EVERY contractor with an airstrip seems to be producing ever more advanced and deadly armed drones....I HOPE this FAILS. In Epic proportions. Some technology's time just hasn't come yet.

I'd call this kind of advance in computing power at THIS moment in human history a *VERY* mixed kind of blessing?

do you think the sim can tailor one of the coats your avatar has on to fit my rabbit that is dynamite? Make it so number OneElectric.

Okay, I get the idea behind this. And I believe I could scale it up no problem, someone find me some really big diamonds...



there's always these diamonds the size of the SUN. Imagine the processing power there.


Diamond the size of the sun


Edit/update: such could very well, from a future perspective be one possible way for us to achieve Type I civilization status in utilizing the data processing power of crystallized white dwarf stars.
Speculation of course.

You and your crazy ideas Boncho.
Are you half-cut again?

Interesting notion. And who's to say we aren't just a giant quantum computer for someone else? Ever wonder why you drank a coke instead of a pepsi? Was that the computer just changing our "spin".

I remember this years ago. Imagine being able to play a game of chess against a computer and the computer sees mate in 70 moves already. One mistake on your part and that number keeps going down. A quantum chess computer would be unbeatable basically

maybe this was covered but u can grow crystals in a vacuum laboratory "perfect" or at least in the terms of perfection. shouldnt this matter if ultimate speed and thermo-neutrality be reached and .. almost cold fusion esque . .room temperature superconductors be able?

so many forms of free energy.. how far ahead could we be?

Using diamond for cooling? That's freaking nuts. Computer components are already expensive as hell due to all the gold, nickle, and copper in them. I can't imagine how much it is going to cost me for DIAMOND cooling. I suppose I can kiss my liquid coolant system goodbye and start saving now


Don't worry, some corp will buy up the patent, and the technology won't be released for a couple hundred years. Gotta love capitalism and how it painfully retards the release of "game changing" technology.

My impression is its simply using a carbon substraight. Just like chips built on Silicon or Galium-arcenide.... but with dimond they're getting really really small about it... and that seems to be what they mean by "quantum" in this case.

BTW, I've seen 1000 CPUs on a circuit board back in the 1980s and taught the "Son Of Man" to read. See my signature link for the patents.

Physicality is illusion, everything that happens is illusion. The only real 'thing' is your experience of the illusion as the 'you' the 'I am' the observer and creator.


Anything after 'I am' is distortion.


Even 'I am REAL' is distortion as words such as 'real' are a part of physicality and cannot describe the consciousness that is all.
