Rambus and Microsoft to jointly address quantum computing issues

The expertise of Rambus in high-bandwidth, power-efficient memory architectures, combined with Microsoft researchers’ knowledge of advanced system and data center design will be applied to drive new technology platforms. “Existing computer architectures are reaching limits due to the ever increasing demands of real-time data consumption, which is driving the need to explore new high-performance, energy-efficient computer systems,” says RambuspRambus vp Gary Bronner, "by working with Microsoft on this project, we can leverage our vast expertise in memory systems to identify new architectural models.” “We’ve been investing in projects that advance our understanding of quantum computing along with its applications and implementation,” says Microsoft's Douglas Carmean, "we are focusing on exploring theoretical and experimental approaches to creating quantum computers, designin...
