Yes Puppy first then CPU ... Very Happy

IBM (another vested expensive quantum hawker) disputes Googles methodology.

meanwhile ... when is this integrated in a consumer device, rather than smoke, mirrors and government projections?

What is this back to mainframes? Shocked

Yup, its a near-absolute zero 1945-50 era mainframe (w/o frame), running quantum computations. 1st generation. My mother was a keypunch validatress upon an original (serial number had one digit) in NYC ('46-'52). Brownie points if you can name that first commercial enterprise in NYC that got one... another was in Chicago.

I won't rush to congratulate, just yet. Their definition of "quantum supremacy" differs from the particle physics definition of "quantum supremacy".
