On Track to 25x20 At Halfway Point

Developing energy efficient processors has long been a design focus at AMD. We set a bold goal in 2014 to deliver at least 25X more energy efficiency by the year 2020 with processors that combine powerful processor and graphics cores in a single chip. 

AMD Ryzen™ Processors Keep AMD Ahead of Pace for 25x20

Our latest mobile processor, the AMD Ryzen™ Processor With Radeon™ Vega Graphics, continues to put AMD ahead of pace for our 25x20 energy efficiency goal.1 By relentlessly improving the “performance per watt” of our processors, we help customers reduce power consumption and improve performance.

Why Energy Efficiency Matters to Enterprises

  1. Based on AMD internal testing as of 12/13/2017. Relative energy efficiency based on a 50:50 weighted average of CPU+GPU performance (variable “C”), as evaluated by Cinebench R15 nT and 3DMark 11 scores, divided by typical energy usage (variable “E”) as defined by: ETEC (Typical Energy Consumption for notebook computers), Energy Star Program Requirements Rev 6.1 10/2014. AMD “Kaveri” represents the baseline of 1.0X for CPU, GPU, and ETEC. AMD “Carrizo” efficiency 1.23C/0.35E=3.51X. AMD “Bristol Ridge” efficiency 1.36C/0.34E=3.97X. AMD “Raven Ridge” efficiency 2.47E/0.44E=5.66X. Scores in order of Cinebench R15 nT/3DMark 11 P Score: “Kaveri” 232/2142 (100%), “Carrizo” 277/2709 (123%), “Bristol Ridge” 279/3234 (136%), “Raven Ridge” 667/4425 (247%). Results may vary with configuration and driver version. RVM-53.
