D-Wave Will Ship a 2000-Qubit Quantum Computer Next Year
September 27, 2016
D-Wave announced at the company’s inaugural users group conference in Santa Fe, New Mexico that it will start shipping a quantum computer with 2000 qubits next year. This is twice the size of its current 1000-qubit D-Wave 2X. The 2000-qubit quantum computer is said to be 500 to 1000 times faster than its predecessor. D-Wave’s senior vice president of systems, Jeremy Hilton, said an even larger quantum computer based on a whole new processor design will come out two to three years later.
