Phillipson, F. Publication year 2022 Abstract We report the Atos Q-score for D-Wave’s quantum devices, classical algorithms and hybrid quantum-classical solver. Computing the Q-score entails solving the Max-Cut problem for increasingly large graphs. This work presents the first computation of the Q-score on a quantum device and shows how these quantum devices compare to classical devices at solving optimisation problems.We use D-Wave’s standard methods out of the box with a time limit of 60 seconds. The Q-score for D-Wave’s 2000Q and Advantage devices are 70 and 140, respectively. The Q-score for two of D-Wave’s classical algorithms, based on tabu search and simulated annealing respectively, are 2,300 and 5,800. Finally, we report the out-of-the-box hybrid approach to have a Q-score of 12,500.— Subject Quantum computingApplication-oriented benchmarksQuantum annealingQ-scoreD-WaveMax-Cu To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:977c709a-44d7-48a0-9e69-53056609ef66 TNO identifier 970986 Source IEEE Conference on Quantum Software, Barcelona 11-15 juli 2022 Document type conference paper Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
