When Was D-Wave Founded?

D-Wave was founded in 1999 as the world's first quantum computing company. Since then, D-Wave has been granted over 160 U.S. patents and has published over 100 peer-reviewed papers in leading scientific journals. We have installed more than $50 million worth of quantum systems at customer sites. 

In 2010 we released our first commercial system, the D-Wave One™ quantum computer. We have doubled the number of qubits in successive generations, shipping the 512-qubit D-Wave Two™ system in 2013 and the 1000+ qubit D-Wave 2X™ system in 2015. In 2017 we released the D-Wave 2000Q™ system with 2000 qubits and advanced control features.

In 2018, we released the Leap service, making our D-Wave 2000Q™ system even more accessible to developers. Join today with a free account and run your code on a real quantum computer!
