D-Wave has made quantum annealing computing chips using different materials which reduced noise and increase speed by 25 times. The reduced noise improved performance with more than a 25x speed up in solving spin glass problems.
They are continuing efforts to reduce noise in D-Wave QPUs. The experimental fabrication stacks examined in this study are but an intermediate step in an ongoing effort to improve D-Wave’s technology. They anticipate that additional and more substantial modifications currently being driven by detailed materials science investigations will imminently be qualified for full-scale manufacturing.
In May, D-Wave Systems announced a revised version of the 2000Q quantum annealer that aims to reduce noise. The revised D-Wave 2000Q is available immediately in the D-Wave Leap quantum cloud service, though it is not available for on-premises deployment—the manufacturing refinement that enabled this will be used for the company’s next-generation platform.

Remember this garbage?
Read the person I was responding too knucklehead. It is called hyperbole. Look it up.
Stop trolling. Teslas have proven lower chances of combustion than ICE cars. I know it seems the opposite just reading mass media but try to look deeper.
Specifically for that problem, it is still slower than a regular laptop.
Don’t expect anything of substance from D-wave. They claim and have claimed capabilities far beyond what they can actually achieve.
Is this “25x speed up” independent of the input problem?
This blog post suggests so, but it sounds a bit implausible to me. Any quantum physicist/ computer scientist here who cares to elaborate?
From the D-wave article:
“Performance was characterized using a set of 100 spin glass instances that were defined on a graph given by the intersection of the working physical qubits on each QPU and a perfect 8×8×8 cubic lattic”
This sounds a lot more specific.

If it were Tesla all the worlds problems would have been solved by now. Musk is in it for humanity. All hail saint musky. If it were Tesla, how many of these machines old have caught fire and burned to the ground by now. Wooooo! Are you Musks girlfriend? I’ve never seen someone so anxious to fluff another man as rderkis does Musk.
It’s easy to get a better idea on both fronts, invest a little time.
With tesla it would have been a free upgrade or perhaps even a free software download. 🙂
Sadly I have never understood how a quantum computer works, nor how it’s programmed 🙁
