+ - Quantum or not, controversial computer runs no faster than a normal one->

Submitted by sciencehabit
sciencehabit (1205606) writes "The D-Wave computer, marketed as a groundbreaking quantum machine that runs circles around conventional computers, solves problems no faster than an ordinary rival, a new test shows. Some researchers call the test of the controversial device, described online today in Science, the fairest comparison yet. But D-Wave argues that the computations used in the study were too easy to show what its novel chips can do."
