In all likelihood, somewhere down the line quantum computers will get more compact and Iām guessing could be packaged in the form of a GPU where it would plug into the PCIx slot on a motherboard. At the rate weāre going I would hope for 15-20 years in the future.

If we get to the point of being able to commercially ship Quantum Processors to consumers, Iād imagine weād have solved the problems for quantum encryption, and created APIās for easier implementation in programs and games.

Also just because a quantum ray-tracing algorithm hasnāt been written, doesnāt mean it canāt be done.

Lets be real for a minute though, by the time quantum computers are commercialized, our general use CPUās will theoretically have exponentially more transistors therefore speeding up renders, and allowing for higher render resolutions. Weād have to re-evaluate at that point to see if quantum computers could even *provide* any benefit over general computing.
