Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In computing, FLOPS is a measure of a computer's performance, especially in fields of scientific calculations that make heavy use of floating-point calculations, similar to the older, simpler, instructions per second. Since the final S stands for "second," conservative speakers consider "FLOPS" as both the singular and plural of the term, although the singular "FLOP" is frequently encountered. Alternatively, the singular FLOP is used as an abbreviation for "FLoating-point OPeration," and a flop count is a count of these operations. In this context, "flops" is simply the plural rather than a rate.show more
