This question already has an answer here:

I've read posts everywhere and watched videos but still I don't understand one part of it. How are they able to process all these operations in parallel.

So based on the landscape example here.

How would a quantum computer be able to check all those areas at once rather than the traditional algorithm to check random areas or process through the entire landscape
