Definition Edit

A cost/performance ratio is

[t]he ratio between the cost of a system and the effective performance of the system. This ratio is sometimes estimated by the ratio between the purchase cost of a computer and the performance of the computer as measured by a benchmark. A more accurate but hard to estimate measure is the ratio between the total cost of ownership of a platform and the value contributed by the platform.[1]
