Announcing the D-Wave 2X Quantum Computer

D-Wave, the quantum computer company, has announced it's latest quantum computer the D-Wave 2X. "With 1000+ qubits... the D-Wave 2X will enable customers to run much larger, more complex problems on the system. In addition to scaling beyond 1000 qubits, the new system incorporates other major technological and scientific advancements. These include an operating temperature below 15 millikelvin, near absolute zero and 180 times colder than interstellar space. With over 128,000 Josephson tunnel junctions, the new processors are believed to be the most complex superconductor integrated circuits ever successfully used in production systems." Quantum computers are set to become mainstream, perhaps. Read more about the D-Wave 2X here.
