Quantum computing is an upcoming computational technology that could be the key to advancing the field and ushering in a new era of innovation. In this paper examines the viability of quantum computing extensively using only highly credible peer-reviewed articles from the last few years. These peer-reviewed articles will provide relevant facts and data from prominent researchers in the field of computer engineering. A growing problem in the field of electronics and computers is the concept of Moore’s law. Moore’s law refers to the doubling of transistors every two years in integrated circuits. Recent research has suggested that electronics may soon reach the limits of Moore’s law. With this looming threat on the horizon, it is plausible that quantum computers will be a viable alternative to the classical computer of today. With a constant demand for faster and more advanced technologies, the problem of Moore’s law holds great importance. Within the next few decades, this issue must be addressed, or the computer industry could face stagnation in the development of new products such as processors and video cards.
