Still most of the quantum computing is a hype so far with no real application being showcased. So far it also seems highly impractical and expensive.
There is a reason silicon chips with transistors are popular, they are dirt cheap to make and operate.
Tbf quantum computing is not really intended as a replacement to silicon, but it's very good for things like climate/physical modelling or defeating encryption.
