4 Rocky Mountain Supercomputing Centers, Inc. Executive Summary (v05) © 2009 RMSC How fast is a Teraflop? Teraflop or TFLOPS – (a million million or trillion) floating-point operations per second It takes 32,000 years for a trillion seconds to tick away. For example, the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) uses the IBM Blue Gene/L supercomputer with a peak performance of 17.2 TFLOPS. It would take a person operating a hand-held calculator more than 500,000 years to do the numeric calculations this supercomputer completes every second.
