IBM Chairman, President and CEO Ginni Rometty delivers a keynote address at CES 2016 at The Venetian Las Vegas on January 6, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

IBM said it has successfully tested its two most powerful quantum computers ever with both holding processing power far in excess of its famous Watson infrastructure.

Thanks to the more flexible way it can store data, a quantum computer processes faster and uses much less energy than a classical computer.

The processing power of a quantum computer is measured in “qubits” and IBM claim they will soon have computers that are ten times as powerful as their machine in use today.
