Quantum computing is still a necessary development tech needed for the future. 
 
This new 17-qubit test chip's improved design features include:
  • New architecture allowing improved reliability, thermal performance and reduced radio frequency (RF) interference between qubits.
  • A scalable interconnect scheme that allows for 10 to 100 times more signals into and out of the chip as compared to wirebonded chips.
  • Advanced processes, materials and designs that enable Intel's packaging to scale for quantum integrated circuits, which are much larger than conventional silicon chips.

Specs: AMD RYZEN 7 1800X, Samsung SM961 M.2, 16 GB Corsair DDR4 memory (CMR16GX4M2C3200C16W), MSI X370 Gaming Pro motherboard

    It's crazy how much is invested into this theoretical technology which no expert is really certain is even possible to harness.

    Well, that's the usual excuse to any new technology, both the successes and the failures. Current computing has hard limits and if we ever want to achieve sci-fi levels of computing we'll need something radical like quantum computing to help get closer to that reality.
     
    IBM has also developed a 17 qubit chip, apparently 17 is the magic number required to be able to bake error-correction technology into the hardware.
