"So far the device can simultaneously carry out 16 times more operations than
a normal computer transistor. Researchers suggest the invention might
eventually prove able to perform roughly 1,000 times more operations than a
"Since duroquinone possesses four cones, each molecule essentially has four
different settings. Since the central molecule can simultaneously control 16
other duroquinones, mathematically this means a single pulse at the machine
can have 4^16 - or nearly 4.3 billion - different outcomes.
In comparison, a normal computer transistor can only carry out just one
instruction at once, and only has two settings - 0 and 1. This means a single
pulse at it can only have two different outcomes. "
Hope this is of use
