What is it? I have heard that it is 50 times below the most powerful computer?

At the bottom of http://boinc.berkeley.edu/ it indicates just over 15 peta flops on average. Not shabby but not a record and not 50 times less either.

Tianhe-2 is a 33.86-petaflop supercomputer located in National Supercomputer Center in Guangzhou, China. The Sunway TaihuLight is also a Chinese supercomputer which, as of June 2016, is ranked number one in the TOP500 list as the fastest supercomputer in the world, with a LINPACK benchmark rating of 93 petaflops.

Boinc in total is 15 Petaflops, Seti at Home in 2013, over 668 Teraflops.

As Gary says, not too shabby at all!

Look at the bottom of the applications page. At the moment, SaH is at a "Total average computing: 697,509 GigaFLOPS". That changes though minute by minute.
