(Ap) – Quantum computers aim to complete tasks in just a few minutes of that, and here’s the best of conventional computers thousands of years. However, in almost every photo of the unit, there is a tangle of wires in the background, connected to the apparatus that controls the quantum computer.

Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: Msft. (INTC.D) on Monday announced a chip that they are hoping to change that. The Santa Clara, California-based chipmaker announced a chip called the “the Horse Ridge” in that it is designed to have all the work done by the threads, and reduce the size of the chip and the electronics are about the size of a tea saucer.

Quantum computers are still many years of every day use, but they have drawn the interest of large technology firms. In October, researchers from the Alphabet, Inc. ‘ s (GOOGL.D) Google announced that they had created a machine that is faster than the conventional computers. The other major technology companies such as International Business Machines (IBM.N) and Microsoft Corp (MSFT.(O) have been investing in the technology.

Intel has a two-quantum efforts to each and every treatment is a new way of building the core of a quantum computer. In the central part of a large machine that makes use of what are known as “qubits.”

In a lot of quantum computing, the qubits must be kept very cold, in the vicinity of the temperature where atoms stop moving, and in a special refrigerator. This makes it very difficult to connect the wires to the qubits for the transmission and reception of information. The vast majority of these wires, and the electronics will have to sit out of the special refrigerator.

Intel said the chip, which is named after one of the coldest places in the U.S. state of Oregon, where many of its factories are located, has been designed in order to be able to sit down at the quantum fridge. The company hopes to have the chip for quantum computers is more practical to produce in the future.

“Intel recognises that controls are an essential piece of the puzzle that we needed to do in order to solve for the development of a commercial scale, a quantum system,” Jim Clarke, Intel’s director of the quantum hardware, it said in a statement.
