I just ordered some parts to build my own mining rig but there is always a new technology on the horizon. I'm not the most technically inclined but was wondering if something such as the D Wave Onehttp://www.dwavesys.com/en/products-services.html would be a viable option for mining?

Unless you have a couple hundred thousand dollars laying around and have lots of programming experience, that isn't going to help you.

That sounds amazing!

You wouldn't make any BTC with it though I'd imagine.

Heh, I think this requires a bit more than a few thousand dollars and some programming experience.

128 qubits is a bit beyond what is believably feasible.  It sounds like there is some salesmanship going on here.

Apart from the qubit count being a bit of a quantum leap I'm pretty sure I read that quantum computers can only partly solve SHA hashes. So it does reduce the strength, but the bit count could just be increased to mitigate when/if it becomes plausible.
