Now that's funny! Trillions every hour
CPU's are getting closer to having 1 billion transistors on them as a standard! I believe some have around 700-800 million while GPU's are already getting into the billion range.
Even if you have 500 million transistors on a simple CPU running at 2Ghz= 2000Mhz = 2,000,000,000 hertz (I think if my math is correct)
Now if Hertz is-
The hertz (symbol: Hz) is a measure of frequency per unit of time, or the number of cycles per second.
If a CPU with 500 million transistors is running at a series of 2 billion cycles per second that's a lot of data. I don't know the definition of an instruction would be in this, but I know that's a lot of cycles of data per second!
