"Time to good-enough is a better measure than time-to-perfect

D-Wave, a company we have covered extensively in the past, has taken some heat because a number of tests have shown that its adiabatic quantum optimizer is no faster than a regular computer. But the company is now claiming that its machine is between two to 600 times faster than a classical computer. What happened to obtain such a huge speed-up? A new benchmark, that's what."
