Google: Our quantum computer is 100 million times faster than a conventional system | ExtremeTech

Ever since quantum computer manufacturer D-Wave announced that it had created an actual system, there have been skeptics. The primary concern was that D-Wave hadn’t built a quantum computer as such, but instead constructed a system that happened to simulate a quantum annealer — one specific type of quantum computing that the D-Wave performs — more effectively than any previous architecture.Earlier reports suggested this was untrue, and Google has now put such fears to rest. The company has presented findings conclusively demonstrating the D-Wave does perform quantum annealing, and is capable of solving certain types of problems up to 100 million times faster than conventional systems.
