Can this start-up become the Nvidia of quantum computing?
With its focus on silicon spin qubits and traditional CMOS transistor manufacturing processes, U.K. start-up Quantum Motion bears some resemblance to a giant of the semiconductor industry: Intel.
But, from a business perspective, it is not Intel that Quantum Motion is intent on emulating. Instead, Quantum Motion CEO James Palles-Dimmock said the firm aspires to a model closer to that of a different giant of the sector: Nvidia.
