MTOPS - Computer Definition
(Million Theoretical Operations Per Second) A measurement of a computer's cryptographic performance in decoding a secret message. For example, an old 600 MHz Pentium III yielded approximately 1,400 MTOPS, while a subsequent Core 2 Duo CPU performed more than 11,000 MTOPS. Although widely used, MTOPS is a rather imprecise measurement, as are MIPS, FLOPS and other such gauges of performance. See MIPS and FLOPS.
