Thanks for the correction, it sould read: "IBM's Q Systems can attain coherence times (the time before the quantum states relax into an answer) of over 90 microseconds, allowing their 20-to-50 qubit systems the time to solve extremely complex applications impossible for conventional supercomputers.

From the article "IBM's Q Systems cannot attain coherence times (the time before the quantum states relax into an answer) of over 90 microseconds, allowing their 20-to-50 qubit systems the time to solve extremely complex applications impossible for conventional supercomputers." Did you mean "cannot"?  Otherwise, what coherence times are acheivable and what can be solved?
