x86 - We have all seen this, x86 is actually abbreviated, it stands for the 8086 platform that Intel designed for the 8086 processor back in the early 80's. Of course there have been some improvements over the years. x86 is a 32-bit architecture.

x64, EMT64 - You could say for the purposes of the topic it is similar to x86, however it is a 64-bit architecture.

You can read more here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86-64

FLOPS - are floating-point operations per second.
Floating-point is considered to be a method of encoding real numbers within the limits of finite precision available on computers.
Using floating-point encoding, extremely long numbers can be handled relatively easily. A floating-point number is expressed as a basic number, an exponent, and a number base which is usually ten but may also be 2.

Peta-Flop
A petaflop is a measure of a computer's processing speed and can be expressed as a thousand trillion floating point operations per second.

Acronym Dictionary - A - Z Listing

Since the internet was originally based on ascii communication, and mostly the typed word, a number of typing shortcuts have become quite broadly used. A few of these, listed below, refer to specific emotions, as opposed to word shortcuts. For instance, if I wanted to end a statement with a grin, to show that I was being humorous, I'd end it like this <g>. Or if what I wrote was exceedingly funny, I'd be <ROFL>.

If you don't want to be perceived as a real newbie (a person new to the internet), use one or two of these judiciously in each message where appropriate. But try to avoid using them on your children's birthday cards, or you'll look like a real geek! ;-)

FWIW, these are just a few of the many available, and as more people get online, new ones are added daily. I've provided a brief form at the bottom of this list for you to provide additional acronyms. Thanks!

IPO - Initial Public Offering
With Twitter listed on the New York Stock Exchange this week Twitter-IPO is trending.

"IPO" stands for "initial public offering." When the news media report that a company is "going public," this means that company is making an initial public offering. This means that the company is offering its shares for sale to the public for the first time. An IPO is a way for a company to raise money for its growth and upcoming projects.
