FLOPS means floating point operations per second -- an approximate measure of a computer's processing speed.
FLOPS, like MIPS, are arguably not that useful as a benchmark for modern computers because there are many other factors in computer performance other than raw floating-point computation, such as interprocessor communication, cache coherence, and the memory hierarchy.
However, for purely mathematical calculations, such as analysis of data, the FLOPS measurement is effective.
