Giant top of desktop processors ranked by performance per global cost

Ranking of desktop processors by performance / overall cost ratio. The overall cost is the price of the new or used processor (if not available anymore) + the cost of electricity required to run the chip in TDP (Thermal Design Power) for the duration of 5 years, assuming that the machine is used 13 hours a day, every day.
