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
  • I know that this post is more recent, but there seem to be some good points about flops here: stackoverflow.com/questions/329174/… – Charles Oct 20 '16 at 14:58

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


Intel EM64T Xeon X56xx (Westmere-EP) 2930 MHz (11.72 GFlops) http://top500.org/system/details/10603

Mandelbrot multi-core scalar 15.3 Gflops
Dot Product multi-core scalar 10.8 Gflops
Dot Product multi-core vector 25.1 Gflops
LU Decomposition multi-core scalar 6.36 Gflops
Primality Test multi-core scalar 8.15 Gflops
