"Google Confirms 'Quantum Supremacy'  Completes 10,000 Year Calculation In 200 Seconds" ... grandson of Cray 1, but not something for your online gaming system.

More important, was to keep it stable for 200+ seconds. Also a practical quantum computer would have redundant qbits.
Here is how to quantify this ...
54 qbits equals 2^54 computations or 1.8 x 10^16. But a 40 character, 36letter alphabet code has 1.8x10^62 combinations. So this new machine would take 200 x 10^46 seconds to run or 6.3x10^40 years. So a simple cypher is still impervious to brute force. And in physics, there is nothing faster at these particular algorithms (parallel decoding) than a quantum computer. So even a simple cypher will be forever impervious to brute force decoding. What Bletchley Park did, wasn't beat math, they beat bad German use of the Enigma.
