How to calculate computational cost of an annealer based algorithm?
As per my knowledge, to solve a problem using D-wave QPU (or SA solver or Leap solver) we need to construct only the QUBO, and rest of things will be taken care by Quantum annealer. But when we do analysis of an approach we also look into the "computational cost". In Circuit model of quantum computing there is also a metric called "gate cost". Is there any similar (or different) way of calculating computational cost for annealer based approaches?
