IBM has announced the forthcoming launch of a 53-quantum-bit (qubit) quantum computer for use by IBM Q Network clients.

The system is billed as the largest universal quantum computer available for external use to date.

IBM said the 53-qubit computer will enable the company to roll out bigger, more reliable systems for cloud implementations via new techniques, including more compact custom electronics for better scaling, reduced error rates, and a new chip design.

Said IBM Research director Dario Gil, "The single goal of this passionate community is to achieve what we call Quantum Advantage, producing powerful quantum systems that can ultimately solve real problems facing our clients that are not viable using today's classical methods alone."
