(computer science)
A unit of computer speed, equal to 109 flops.


(GFLOPS) One thousand million (10^9) floating point operations per second.

One of them is strictly "one gigaflops" in the same way that one mile per hour isn't 1 MP.

See prefix.


(GIGAFLoating point OPerations per Second) One billion floating point operations per second. See FLOPS.
