D-Wave commercialises its first 5000+ qubit quantum computer

D-Wave’s new hybrid solver gives application developers the ability to switch from binary variables, like 0 or 1, to a quadratic model, like red, yellow, and blue.

A Canadian quantum computing firm D-Wave announced on Tuesday it is commercialising its next-generation system Advantage, built for businesses.

The company’s computer is already being used, via its cloud, by some corporations to build and run applications for their operations.

D-Wave is taking another step, and making Advantage generally available to other businesses through its cloud platform Leap. The system is made of more than 5000 qubits, which is more than double the count of processing units in its earlier D-Wave’s 2000Q machine.

Canadian based D-Wave has announced on its blog that it has developed a new quantum computer for use by businesses. Called Advantage, the new system has 5,000 qubits and 15-way qubit connectivity. The new machine will be made available to business customers over the Internet via the Leap quantum cloud service.


Over the past several years, several companies have dedicated resources to the development of a true quantum computer that can tackle problems conventional computers cannot handle. Progress on developing such computers has been slow, however, especially when compared with the early development of the conventional computer. As part of the research effort, companies have taken different approaches. Google and IBM, for example, are working on gate-model quantum computer technology, in which qubits are modified as an algorithm is executed. D-Wave, in sharp contrast, has been focused on developing so-called annealer technology, in which qubits are cooled during

D-Wave Announces General Availability of First Quantum Computer Built for Business

BURNABY, British Columbia, Sept. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — D-Wave Systems Inc., the leader in quantum computing systems, software, and services, today announced the general availability of its next-generation quantum computing platform, incorporating new hardware, software, and tools to enable and accelerate the delivery of in-production quantum computing applications. Available today in the Leap™ quantum cloud service, the platform includes the Advantage™ quantum system, with more than 5000 qubits and 15-way qubit connectivity, in addition to an expanded hybrid solver service that can run problems with up to one million variables. The combination of the computing power of Advantage and the scale to address real-world problems with the hybrid solver service in Leap enables businesses to run performant, real-time, hybrid quantum applications for the first time.

As part of its commitment to enabling businesses to build in-production quantum applications, the company announced D-Wave Launch™, a jump-start program for businesses who
