Such loop will be stable if it has found a solution (which can be

transferred out).

If there would be a clock, in each cycle there would be checked one

input.

If not, it's no longer classical computer: while removing the clock/

synchronization we are destroying the order and releasing all it's

statistical, quantum properties to make what physics do the best:

solve its partial differential equations. Now it became continuous and

so it can go with energy gradient to some local minimum, but the only

local minimals are stable states (solutions). Every other is extremely

unstable - electron fluid won't rest until it find a solution. The

statistics, differences between propagation times will create

extremely fast chaotic search for it.

Sounds like absolute non-sense. The clocking really means nothing, you can

build complicated systems without a clock. What means everything is the

propogation delay through the logic gates (because of it, clocks are used to

sync). There is no way you can cycle the input and put input to output

without some finite delay, and the maximum clock speed would be set very

very close to this delay, so the advantage of not having a clock would be

almost zero, as the propogation delay would still exist. The time it took to

reach a steady state would match the time of a clocked conventional computer

system, so long as the clocking was done right at the same speed as

propogation delay. Any talk about 'quantum' computing is complete non-sense

at the moment.
