Number of qubits seems the first-order metric. Other than that, it's a matter of relative speed at solving certain problems - sort of like benchmarks.

As the field matures, perhaps there'll be something like SpecQA, for Quantum Annealing. Maybe another SpecMark for general quantum computers.

I'd also watch for metrics related to setup/readout time, power & temperature requirements (or just operating costs), and stability/error rate.

I like the mention of using redundancy, in the form of multiple qubits. I was wondering if that could be an approach for reducing the error rate.
