D-waves is developing a new chip for its D-5 series, which is due to be unveiled later this year.
The company is in the process of finalising the new chip, which it says will have a “very good” power delivery and be able to deliver up to 600W of power.
It will be able produce “much more power than the previous generation” of chips, which are powered by 12-volt batteries, D-sources told the Irish Independent.
D-Wave is also working on a new power pack for the D-10, which will come in at 500W.
It will be the first of the five powerpacks that D-fans have been expecting to see from D-switches.

In January, the company revealed it had reached an agreement with a US company to build a 5G network in New Mexico.
Dawson said in a blog post at the time that it was working with a partner in the US to “create a network that is ready to deploy”.
However, it was not clear if that partner had been awarded the contract.
In addition to the D10 and D10 Plus, Diversified Networks is developing D-Switches for DWave 5s and D-8s.
Diversified said it was building a 5 Gbps fibre-to-the-premises network, and that it would be able deliver 100Mbps to its users within two years.
The 5 Gb/s fibre-based network will be built in Mexico, and will be rolled out to “100% of our customers in 2018”.
The company also announced that it had entered a joint venture with a consortium of companies to build 5G networks in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Chile-Perú, Mexico, Peru and the US.
Diverified Networks will be building 5G-based 5G fibre networks in Peru, Brazil and Argentina, with the intention of having “100%” of its customers connected to them by 2020.
