The Canadian company is considered one of the pioneers in the production of commercially available . The release of the first models took place in 2007. Then it was a 16-Kubany and 28 Kubany computer Orion. In may 2011, the market received a model D-Wave One 128-bit chip, and then D-Wave Two 512-Kubany chip. This D-Wave decided to stop. Commercially available computer D-Wave processor 2000Q 2000 qubit at a price of 15 000 000 dollars.
If you think this machine will be unused, then you are mistaken. A new model of a quantum computer gradually, a queue of buyers. And this despite the fact that many leading scientists are not sure of the feasibility of acquisition of such expensive equipment. The first owner of a new computer will be the Temporal Defence Systems company engaged in computer security. The company's management believes that a quantum computer will allow to promptly solve the most complex issues facing security professionals. Computer scientists are also interested in developing Rovers to explore other planets.
To Compare the performance of the quantum computer traditional can be difficult. Where he wins in computing speed, sometimes tens of thousands of times, especially when using adapted algorithms for it, but somewhere loses. Manufacturers of D-Wave 2000Q claim that their new creation succeeds especially in machine learning. In any case, the software must be carefully adapted to work on a quantum computer that can take away from experts a lot of time and effort. Anyway, D-Wave is not going to stop the development of new models in the near future we should expect even more powerful "quantum monsters".
