Datosphera.com – AMD announced that it has far exceeded the 25 × 20 Energy Efficiency target of the target set in 2014 to increase the energy efficiency of mobile processors by 25 times by 2020.
The new AMD Ryzen 7-4800H mobile processor provides enhanced energy efficiency in metering baseline 2014 amounted to 31.7 times.
Better energy efficiency leads to significantly more benefits gamers including increased battery power, better performance, lower energy costs and a significant reduction in the environmental impact of computing.
“We have always focused on energy efficiency for our processors, but in 2014 we decided to put more emphasis on this capability,”
Our engineering team gathers challenges and charts the path to achieve our long-term targets with 25 times better energy efficiency by 2020.
We were able to exceed our goals, achieving a 31.7-fold increase for the gaming and ultrathin laptop lineup with unmatched performance, graphics and long battery life.
I am very proud of our engineering and business team. “
– Mark Papermaster, Chief Technology Officer & Executive Vice President, Technology and Engineering, AMD.
Energy efficiency for a processor is determined by the amount of work done per unit of energy consumed.
To achieve the 25 × 20 target, AMD is focused on improving architectural development system-on-chip (SoC) which is integrated and increases the efficiency of both the enhancement, power management features real-time; and optimization of silicon power levels.
AMD reduced the average compute time for a given task by 80% from 2014 to 2020, while also achieving an 84% reduction in energy use.
Companies that upgrade 50,000 AMD laptops from the 2014 model to the 2020 model will achieve five times better computing performance and reduce laptop energy consumption by 84%.
Where during the 3 year usage period, you will get savings of around 1.4 million kilowatts hours of electricity and 971,000 kg of carbon emissions, the equivalent of 16,000 trees planted over 10 years.
Achieving the 25 × 20 energy efficiency target is more than just an experience gamers stronger but also further strengthening AMD’s leadership in a sustainable manner.
“The realignment of our planet can go hand in hand with developing powerful technologies and helping our customers achieve their goals,
The power efficiency improvements we’ve made to our laptop processors are making a difference in the world. An annual open report shows progress and eventual achievement of, and exceeding, the energy efficiency target of 25 × 20 reflects AMD’s commitment to sustainable technology. “
– Susan Moore, Corporate Vice President for Corporate Responsibility and International Government Affairs, AMD.
The increased performance and reduced power consumption of the Ryzen 7-4800H beat the historical efficiency trends predicted by Koomey’s Law- analogue of Moore’s Law which illustrates the trend of increasing energy efficiency – as much as 2x from 2014 and 2020.
“Six years ago, AMD challenged itself to significantly improve energy efficiency in mobile processors.
I have reviewed the data and can report that AMD exceeded the 25 × 20 target set in 2014 through improved design, optimization of excellence, and a full focus on energy efficiency.
With a chip that is 31.7 times more energy efficient than its 2014 predecessor, AMD has far outpaced the real efficiency improvements that would be expected from the speed of traditional Moore’s Law as outlined in Koomey’s Law. “
– Dr. Jonathan Koomey, Energy Efficient Computing Industry Expert.
“AMD took the courage to increase the efficiency of its processors by 25 times, far beyond the average, and thus, achieve an industry-leading position in mobile processors.
The 25 × 20 goal requires major changes to architecture, design and software, and does not rely solely on technological advances in silicon processes.
Achieving and exceeding these challenging goals is testament to the hard work the AMD team has put into its products and it has propelled AMD into a leading position in mobile processors. “
– Kevin Krewell, TIRIAS Research Analyst
“AMD’s goal of increasing the power efficiency of its laptop processors by 25 times this year may have seemed like an abstract and arbitrary target when they first announced it six years ago.
However, when they surpassed an impressive target, it became much more meaningful.
Lower energy consumption has never been more important to the planet and the company’s ability to meet targets and achieve strong processor performance is a remarkable reflection of a company that is focused on technology and leads the market for the development of mobile processors. “
