My apologies, should have been more verbose.  Now in the wiki:

    KEY

    The left column denotes price. For instance "$100x" is 100
    TIMES the consumer purchase price.

    Similarly the top column denotes efficiency or performance,
    as an example "5x slower" means 1/5th the speed of a similar
    consumer device.This must be based on the context of the
    contents, we're not building a 3D graph.

This is because people want to build a variety of devices:

  * 3D goggles
  * mobile phone
  * genetic testing cluster
  * game system
  * wearable

The price and performance of these tasks varies as wildly as our
expectations.  Right now we have no idea how performant it will be or
how much it will cost.  This is where the wiki comes in, to outline
ideas based on which bucket the idea falls into.
