A Preview of Bristlecone, Google’s New Quantum Processor
Today we presented Bristlecone, our new quantum processor, at the annual American Physical Society meeting in Los Angeles. The purpose of this gate-based superconducting system is to provide a testbed for research into system error rates and scalability of our qubit technology, as well as applications in quantum simulation, optimization, and machine learning.

So how does it work? What is the underlying mechanism by which it is able to quantum computations?

We are cautiously optimistic that quantum supremacy can be achieved with Bristlecone
Quantum supremacy means a quantum computer outperforming classical supercomputers in some task (it doesn't really matter which supercomputer you choose - once quantum computers beat one in a given task they will quickly beat all in this task). Before that step is reached they are interesting research objects only.
