Price/Performance is a value statement, not a performance metric. When you compare FPS against a price point that is value. If you only care about performance, then price doesn't come into play. I can create a chart of GPUs by average FPS. That is performance and only performance. It doesn't tell me anything about what it cost to achieve that performance. If I add in the cost to achieve a certain FPS, that is now a value statement. I'm not confused one bit about that.
No... (once again) you are confusing the term value and performance.
Price/Performance is simple rationale that you may be overlooking & going ovr your head. It means based on YOUR PRICE.... what PERFORMANCE can u buy..? (or vice-versa; performance/price is the same mental equation).
That is what price/performance means^
You (yourself) set one metric and weight the other, or vice versa to your personal needs and purchase based off that logical conclusion.
Lastly, as said before, value has nothing to do with performance, or how "good a deal" a card may be, if it doesn't perform to your PERFORMANCE needs.
Also, notice how you are stuck on the term FPS and I have never used that... it is bcz u are thinking in terms of a game's fps and I am speaking in terms of personal performance criteria (goal/requirements) would be needed for your purchase.
