Just as GPUs and DPUs enable accelerated computing today, they're also helping a new kind of chip, the QPU, boot up the promise of quantum computing.

In your hand, a quantum processing unit might look and feel very similar to a graphics or a data processing unit. They're all typically chips, or modules with multiple chips, but under the hood the QPU is a very different beast.
