(Tech-Republic) D-Wave Systems recently announced their fifth-generation, 5,000-qubit system. The new quantum computer, named Advantage, will be made available for on-premise deployments and in D-Wave’s Leap cloud service in mid-2020.
The Advantage design incorporates D-Wave’s new Pegasus topology, which was announced in February. The new topology design provides higher connectivity, influencing how problems are solved. Higher connectivity allows for more complex problems to be solved using the same number of qubits. With higher connectivity, less qubits are needed to solve problems.
