I'm using Intel Xeon CPU x5660, 2.80GHz 2.79Ghz in a computer.

I'm trying to find the FLOPS of the CPU, have searched on Internet but didn't find anything about it. Does anybody know how can I find it?

"FLOPS" is no longer a sensible benchmark (hasn't been in over a decade, TBH). The main problem is that there's no clear definition on what one operation is. For instance, is y=a*x+b one operation or two? With FMA (Fused Multiply and Add), it's only one, but often it's still counted as two. – MSalters Mar 26 '12 at 11:22

Use LinX to find the Giga-FLops your computer can do.
