I hear the term “teraflop” used when discussing the graphical capabilities of PCs and gaming consoles, but beyond the very basic understanding that more is better, I’m not sure what the term actually means. What’s a teraflop?
A teraflop is a unit of measurement for computer performance speed. It is messed in operations the machine can perform in a second. One teraflop is a trillion (10 to the 12th power) floating point operations per second. Currently this speed is needed to run highly graphical games as well as do graphics, video and audio editing.
