The Computer Architecture Group at UDC and CESGA are developing a proposal focused on assessing the performance of quantum computers in executing applications, based on identifying tasks that are common to multiple quantum computing applications.

The purchase of a quantum computer represents an investment of several million euros. However, evaluating which quantum computer performs best among various candidates is still an unresolved issue. While classical computing already has several well-established and community-accepted performance evaluation suites, the number of proposals for quantum computing is overwhelming, and there is no clear winner. The Computer Architecture Group at UDC and CESGA are developing a proposal focused on assessing the performance of quantum computers in executing applications. The proposal is based on identifying tasks that are common to multiple quantum computing applications. Each task will be associated with a test case that requires the use of that task and whose results can be verified through classical means. Test cases can be formulated for an arbitrary number of qubits, thereby preventing the obsolescence of our proposal in the face of increasing quantum computer capabilities.
