Dwave Systems Quantum computer Update June, 2007
This pdf discusses a recent presentation by Geordie Rose, CTO of Dwave Systems The main thing is that Dwave believes that they are still on track to release a commercial system May, 2008 that will be one hundred times faster for certain business relevant problems. This would probably be the 512 qubit machine. The 1024 qubit machine would follow up. The dispute on quantumness of the system is ongoing and will not be resolved until May 2008 or later into 2008 and 2009 in my opinion.
