Performance per What?

In this short note, we argue that performance per watt, which is often cited in the graphics hardware industry, is not a particularly useful unit for power efficiency in scientific and engineering discussions. We argue that joules per task and watts are more reasonable units. We show a concrete example where nanojoules per pixel is much more intuitive, easier to compute aggregate statistics from...
