Each processor has a 664-Mflops peak performance, for an aggregate machine peak performance of 2656 Mflops.
Unfortunately, one person's definition of an "operation" may be quite different from another's, resulting in inflated MOPS or MFLOPS figures.
The presented Mflop rates give the performance in [10.
In a similar fashion, floating point operations, those in which numerical quantities are represented by a mantissa and exponent, are measured in millions of floating point operations per second, MFLOPS.
