Expert Exchange explains: “By comparing each processor’s floating operations per second (FLOPS), we avoided any differences in microarchitectures.”
In 1965 Gordon Moore, co-founder of Intel, predicted that the number of transistors in an integrated circuit would double every two years. This is the basis of Moore’s law, and it’s why we currently have pocket-sized devices that are more powerful than 1980s supercomputers that took up entire rooms.
