  GIPS  /gips/  or  /jips/  n.  [analogy  with  {MIPS}] 
  Giga-Instructions  per  Second  (also  possibly  `Gillions  of  Instructions 
  per  Second';  see  {gillion}).  In  1991,  this  is  used  of  only  a  handful  of 
  highly  parallel  machines,  but  this  is  expected  to  change.  Compare  {KIPS}.

  GIPS 
 
  /gips/  or  /jips/  [Analogy  with  {MIPS}]  Giga-Instructions  per 
  Second  (or  possibly  "Gillions  of  Instructions  per  Second";  see 
  {gillion}). 
 
  In  1991,  this  was  used  of  only  a  handful  of  highly  parallel 
  machines  and  one  sequential  processor  built  with  {Josephson 
  device}s.  {DEC}'s  {Alpha  AXP  21164}  processor  was  the  first 
  commercially  available  1  GIPS  sequential  processor  (7  Sep 
  1994).  Compare  {KIPS}.
