​To equal a 300 Qbit Quantum Computer you'd need 2^300 processors, and
that's larger than the number of atoms in the observable universe. With a
little luck Google hopes to have a 49 Qbit Quantum Computer up and running
within a year, if so they would achieve quantum supremacy,  that means it
could solve some problems that are too big for the largest conventional
supercomputer​, even the Tianhe-2 in China that needs 24 megawatts to
