Dividing GHz-Days by "days" to get compute throughput (compute per unit of time), would produce "GHz" as a unit of compute power.

E.g. a computer that does 100 GHz-days in 24h, has a compute power of 100GHz.

Another common unit of "compute power" is GFLOPS, e.g. used in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TOP500
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FLOPS

What is the correspondence between the two units of "compute power", "PrimeNet GHz" and GFLOPS?

E.g. for the example computer that does 100GHz-Days per day, how many GFLOPS would that be?
even Ghz days isn't consistent https://answers.yahoo.com/question/i...1100447AAeZ0E9
