I need to write a program on Windows platform to retrieve number of thread support of a processor and I need to estimate processor speed in MIPS or GFLOPS. I heard that benchmark programs helps to determine processor speed in MIPS or GFLOPS, where I can get these programs or how I can write a benchmark program to estimate MIPS or GFLOPS. If any other ways are there to calculate, please provide related information and also provide links I can get information regarding MIPS estimation.
Awaiting for your reply.... Thanks in advance....

The CPUID System Information Development Kit can be really helpful when you have to retrieve a lot of information from the CPU. It's not free, it's a very complete paid development kit:
However, if you just want to determine the number of threads, that's simpler and you'll find many articles about this topic in these forums.
Hope it helps,
