throughput

The amount of work performed by a computer within a given time. It is a combination of internal processing speed (32-bit vs. 64-bit, etc.), peripheral speeds (I/O) and the efficiency of the operating system, other system software and applications all working together. Transactions processed per second (TPS) is one metric commonly used to gauge throughput. See 32-bit computing and 64-bit computing.
