Is "flops" a reliable measure of deciding computational capacity? If we do matrix multiplication and matrix addition of the same size of matrix, do the flops remain the same?
I am curious to know if I do a 100x100 matrix multiplication and matrix addition, will the FLOPS remain the same? Can I say time required by the processor (and hence FLOPS) remain same regardless of operation?
Can someone also comment on how theoretical maximum FLOPS of a processor are determined. And if FLOPS is taken as standard measure of performance, then can someone use an algorithm that will always be highly efficient but not useful in scientific computing?
