That could be a notional 1 GFLOP/Watt in a fielded system. The original documents for PERFECT are probably a year or two old by now.. but what DARPA is looking for is a nearly 2 order of magnitude improvement... Whether they started at 1 or 1.4 or 6 really doesn't make much difference to what they're looking for.
In any case, it's a long way from a manufacturer's cut sheet to a system installed in a tank bouncing through the woods..

"todays 1 gflop/watt" ?
The K20X delivers 1.4 Tflop nearly.
If i google it's 235 watt TDP.
1.4 Tflop / 235 = 6 gflops/watt
