The scientists concluded that even when quantum systems take millions of physical qubits, many applications will run better on traditional NVIDIA A100-based computers.
At the same time, according to the research, the main problem is not the task itself, but the architecture of quantum computers and their inability to handle the large amount of data needed to solve some problems.
This is because of an I/O data issue similar to what traditional computers faced before the advent of fast SSDs.
This means that tasks such as designing drugs or predicting weather and climate will be better solved in classical systems, while chemistry and materials science are suitable for quantum computers.
