Dividing GHzDays 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 GHzdays 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 100GHzDays per day, how many GFLOPS would that be?

even Ghz days isn't consistent
