D-Wave released their first quantum computer in 2007 with only 16 qubits. While it looks like their projected 2008 machine missed its deadline by eight years, D-Wave just broke the 1000 qubit barrier in a machine upgrade delivered to Google. These past years have revealed a lot about the potential of quantum computers to include achieving huge performance gains without increasing the electrical power demand. The challenge, according to D-Wave, has been in how to build and integrate more qubits into the processor which are achieved through small superconducting loops. Working in tandem, the quantum computer tests specialized algorithms to reveal the most probable outcome of simultaneous chances.
