Introducing IonQ Forte, The First Software-Configurable Quantum Computer

Learn more about our latest system

IonQ Forte

Available Since 2022

Forte is the latest evolution towards a software-configurable quantum computer. Qubit and gate configuration, can be tailored to user needs, creating a truly dynamic and flexible system.

Visualization: Forte’s all-to-all connectivity graphIonQ QPUs are fully connected. The 32 points on the perimeter of the image represent Forte’s 32 qubits. The lines represent the 496 potential entangling gates that can be run across those qubits.

Push the Boundaries of Computing

With 32 qubits, Forte represents IonQ’s largest single core quantum processor. Early access researchers will be able to successfully run quantum programs that have never been executed on physical QPUs before.
