FLOPS

FLOPS, or FLoating point Operations Per Second, is a measurement of floating point calculations. This measurement is typically used to reference the performance of super computers as it is a better indicator of the performance and computing power of super computer array than referencing the collective processing power of the array. Thus you’ll frequently hear a super computer discussed in terms like 100 teraflops (100 trillion FLOPS) instead of the speed of the processor like one references when talking about desktop and mobile computers.
