Amd beats goal energy efficiency
A recent AMD announcement showed that the company has exceeded its goal of promoting energy efficiency in mobile processors. The
25 × 20 target was originally set in 2014 and aims to increase the energy efficiency of mobile processors by 25 times by 2020.
It seems AMD has done it. The new AMD Ryzen 7 4800H mobile processor has successfully increased the energy efficiency in 2014 by 31.7 times.
By doing this, the Ryzen 7 mobile processor manages to provide higher efficiency for laptops, which is always good news for laptop users. This leads to longer battery life, higher performance, lower energy costs, and lower environmental impact.
"We've always focused on processor power efficiency, but in 2014, we decided to pay more attention to this capability," said Mark Papermaster, AMD executive vice president of technology and engineering.
"Our engineering team worked together to address the challenge and developed a path to achieve our extended goal of increasing energy efficiency 25 times by 2020. We far exceeded our goal and achieved a 31.7-fold improvement, enabling ultra-thin gaming and gaming notebooks with unmatched performance, graphics and long battery life I'm very proud of our engineering and commercial teams. "The
processor's energy efficiency depends on the amount of work per unit of power used. With AMD's 25x20 goal, this means that AMD must focus on providing an efficient system-on-chip (SoC) architecture. This means working to improve real-time power management features and silicon-level power optimization.
From 2014-2020, AMD was able to reduce average task computing time by 80% and reduce power use by 84%.
is not only good news for people buying laptops equipped with new AMD chips, but it is also a good statement from AMD on sustainability.
AMD is the first semiconductor company to approve climate protection targets as "science-based targets." This also includes a 25 × 20 goal.
AMD corporate vice president in charge of corporate responsibility and international government affairs, Susan Moore, said: “Stewardship of our planet can go hand in hand with the development of powerful technologies. and help our clients to achieve their objectives ”.
“What We Have in Laptop Processors The energy efficiency improvements we've made have had an impact on the world around us. Each year we publicly report on progress and eventually meet and exceed the 25x20 energy efficiency goal, which reflects AMD's commitment to sustainable technology. "
AMD Ryzen 7 4800H in power consumption The substantial increase in value also exceeds the trend predicted by Koomey's law.
Koomey's Law is based on the idea of Moore's Law, which predicts that energy efficiency trends will continue to improve each year. The new AMD processors have exceeded this forecast by 2 times.
Energy-saving computing industry expert Dr. Jonathan Koomey said: "I have reviewed the data and can report that AMD has exceeded the 25 × 20 target it set in 2014 through improved design, superior optimization, and focus on energy-efficient lasers. AMD’s chip energy efficiency is 31.7 times higher than its 2014 predecessors. In the real world, the efficiency far exceeds the expected speed of traditional Moore’s Law, as expressed by Coumi’s Law. "
No matter how you look at it, it seems AMD has indeed pioneered energy efficiency. See if other chips in the 4000 mobile processor family provide similar energy efficiency results without affecting device performance. What do you think of AMD’s progress in this area with the chip
