Quantum computers are more energy efficient

I was Tweeting about something I want to be true, but my colleagues disagreed. So, here is one theoretical model to scale a quantum computer into a quantum system and the math behind energy usage, processing power, and cost. It shows that today’s quantum computers are 10x more energy efficient than classical supercomputers, ceteris paribus.

Me: “A good reminder that today’s exabyte…
