(VentureBeat) D-Wave Systems has announced the availability of a lower-noise D-Wave 2000Q processor in its Leap cloud service. D-Wave noted that the lower-noise 2000Q processor is only available to its cloud customers. It’s the Canadian company’s wy of highlighting its strategy to deliver ongoing quantum processor and software updates through the cloud.
The lower-noise processor promises “improved performance, precision, and impact on quantum effects.” To back its claims, D-Wave published research based on the spin glass application featured in Science last year. The experimental results confirm a positive correlation between reduced noise and improved performance with at least a 25-times speed-up in solving spin glass problems.
