So, what's 671 kWIPS in FLOPS?

1 I found the following possibly useful information about the Whetstone benchmark:

Looks like one kWIPS is 0.001 MWIPS, and judging from the table of data the MWIPS for a particular architecture/compiler is usually in the range of  2-5 MFLOPS.

So a rough guesstimate would be 200,000 FLOPS (ie, not very fast by modern standards)

2 Heh.  Thanks, I used  a figure of 1 WIP = 0.5 FLOPS,which is probably near enough.
