¹ This benchmark uses the mean estimator for the timings. To get accurate timings when recreating the results, please ensure no other other applications run concurrently.

Single Gate Benchmark

Benchmarks of a) Pauli-X gate; b) Hadamard gate; c) CNOT gate; d) Toffolli gate.



Parameterized Circuit Benchmark

b) Benchmarks of parameterized circuit. c) Benchmarks of parametrized circuit with batched registers (batch size = 1000).


  • qiskit state vector simulator does not support rotation x/z gate, thus there is no benchmark on the following circuits.
  • PennyLane benchmark contains some overhead from error handling since we do not include measurement in this benchmark (#7)
  • the performance of CUDA may vary on different machine (#6), although the difference is not very huge
