Pareto Curve stands for the optimal configurations for given energy per operation.

@PandaX Don't forget that it's only gives the currently known optimal configuration, not necessarily the best possible. As was discussed in class (unless I misunderstood), one could theoretically exceed the current performance of the Pareto Curve. To me, this makes the Pareto curve more a benchmark of what's currently the industry standard (i.e. if you make something worse than what's on the Pareto curve then you're probably doing it wrong) rather than the theoretical limit of what's possible.

Edit: According to this Wikipedia article, it seems like perhaps the Pareto curve is the theoretical limit / best possible? Could someone elaborate on this?

Pareto curve tells us the best energy/performance point on the graph.
