Hi linux kid,

In your recent thread about MIPS, a link was posted to a wikipedia article about processor speeds:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Million_instructions_per_second

Was that article of any help? Can you be a bit more specific in your question? Like, are you asking specifically about a 2GHz Pentium processor in a PC running some operating system and a C++ custom program to do some computation involving 16 million of something? More details would be helpful.
