In 2014 AMD has set a bold goal to deliver at least 25 times more energy efficiency by the year 2020 (25×20) in their mobile processors that combine powerful graphic and compute cores in a single chip.

Now AMD announced their 3rd Gen Ryzen Processors with Radeon Vega Graphics (“Renoir” 2020) has exceeded their 25×20 energy efficiency goal. They deliver 31.7x performance and efficiency by AMD’s estimation, That’s 6.7% more performance than its efficiency goal. AMD relentlessly improved the “performance per watt” of the processors. That’s a significant reduction in power consumption and improvement in performance.

31.7 times additional energy efficiency.

AMD is proud of the Ryzen 7 4800H, especially since it has outpaced the historical efficiency trend predicted by Koomey’s law — a Moore’s law analog describing energy efficiency improvement trends — by 2x from 2014 and 2020.AMD once stated “25×20 goal, if achieved, an AMD powered laptop will consume one-fifth the power and accomplish a task in one-fifth the time as an AMD powered laptop produced in 2014″

AMD has a similar goal to 25×20 in mind for the next 5-10 years but in a broader context. In a world with different computing requirements relating to AI acceleration, Raytracing. The Tech Gaint also plans to go beyond the desktop, gaming, and server space. As these domains have distinct performance/energy co-optimization efforts. AMD wants to be into what matters most to end-users, what drives to lower energy consumption, and what offers impressive environmental gains for the future.
