So, from what I understand, modern computers use superscalar CPUs which allows the computer to run two instructions on two separate lines of data in parallel. Which in lame man's terms is just: the CPU can run two instructions at the same time. Now, from what I understand, this is also a bragging point for the advancements in quantum computing: quantum computers would be able to compute to pieces of instruction at the same time. So what is the difference between a superscalar CPU and a quantum CPU? Am I misunderstanding everything entirely? Is there a twist to the whole quantum computing part? I quite stumped. Any and all answers will be greatly appreciated. Hope I posted this in the correct section. Thanks.
