Quantinuum Released Its System Model H2

Quantinuum released its System Model H2, the highest-performing quantum computer ever built, according to Quantinuum. The H2 quantum processor has enabled the controlled creation and manipulation of non-Abelian anyons, essential for the development of topological qubits and fault-tolerant quantum computers. Scientists from Quantinuum, in collaboration with researchers from Harvard University and Caltech, demonstrated a new state of matter called a non-Abelian topologically ordered state. The H2 processor features 32 fully-connected, high-fidelity qubits and an all-new architecture that advances the System Model H1’s linear design. The H2 processor launches with a Quantum Volume of 65,536, surpassing the last record announced using the H1-1 in February.
