petaflops

(unit)
10^15 flops or 1000 teraflops. No computer has achieved this performance yet.

petaFLOPS

(PETAFLoating point OPerations per Second) One quadrillion floating point operations per second. Using more than 10 million cores, China's Sunway TaihuLight supercomputer sustained 93 petaFLOPS in 2016. In late 2018, IBM's Summit supercomputer achieved 200 petaFLOPS. See FLOPS, exaFLOPS and Roadrunner.
