IonQ (IONQ) Jumps on Announcement of IonQ Forte – Its Latest Generation of Quantum Systems
IonQ (IONQ) received a surge of around 17.5% upon their announcement of its latest generation of quantum systems. The new system, IonQ Forte, features novel, cutting-edge optics technology that enables increased accuracy and further enhances IonQ’s system performance.
Forte is expected to be initially available for select developers, partners and researchers in 2022 and for broader access in 2023.
IonQ calls Forte “the latest evolution towards a ‘software-configurable quantum computer.'”
“IonQ Forte is further proof that high-performance quantum computers can be designed and built so both qubit count and gate fidelity improve simultaneously. We expect that this will lead to quantum computers with increasing algorithmic qubit numbers that will enable the search for solutions to the most complex problems of our time,” said IonQ Chief Technology Officer, Jungsang Kim. “IonQ’s quantum systems, including Aria and Forte, are at the forefront of achieving practical utility. The most impactful quantum computing applications will come to light when leading innovators seeking new ways to tackle their formidable problems get to work with the best systems, and customize them for their unique needs. We can’t wait to get these systems in people’s hands.”
IonQ is a member of the PRISM Web 3.0 Index, which shot up 8% for the day.
IonQ, Inc. is a leader in quantum computing, with a proven track record of innovation and deployment. IonQ’s current generation quantum computer, IonQ Forte, is the latest in a line of cutting-edge systems, including IonQ Aria, a system that boasts of industry-leading 20 algorithmic qubits. Along with record performance, IonQ has defined what it believes is the best path forward to scale. IonQ is the only company with its quantum systems available through the cloud on Amazon Braket, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud, as well as through direct API access. IonQ was founded in 2015 by Christopher Monroe and Jungsang Kim based on 25 years of pioneering research. To learn more, visit www.ionq.com.
