CPU speed

    On average, how long would it take a 2ghz processor to compute a string math problem that is about 16 million digits long?

    Hi linux kid,

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


    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.
