Flop stands for FLoating-point OPeration, the time it takes for a computer to do a certain number of these operations each second is used to characterise cpu performance. So a FLOP has a variable speed depending on the computer architecture.

Maybe a better question would be, What is the theoretically fastest FLOP or how many FLOPs can a Chip perform a seccond?
