It's pointless to discuss performance w/o considering price.  It doesn't matter how good FF is if APS-C is more than adequate at a much lower price (and size).

Adequate is relative - there are always those who will pay more for better.   I personally know more photographers who switched to FF in the last year or so than those who switched to mirrorless or upgraded APS-C bodies.

If performance was all that mattered, computers would still use 8" hard-drives because they'd always have the edge in terms of capacity and cost per byte.

Huh?  8" drives can't spin as fast (latency) and materials is a significant cost driver. Hence the drive to reduce number of platters in drives.
