That old view is changing, acording to the most recent information it's
very likely that the D-wave computer is a quantum device after all. And
even if it's not a quantum computer (and it probably is)  it solves
problems in a way no computer has before and its very very fast. See:

Yes but that is a very important problem that among other things includes
the all important protein folding problem.
