Six years ago (2014 to be precise), AMD had set out a goal to improve the energy efficiency of its mobile processors by 25 times by 2020 (also known as ’25×20′ goal). It seems that not only did the company achieve this goal, it had also exceeded this target. Its recent launch of the Ryzen 7 4800H CPU is now 31.7 times more efficient—based on the baseline measurement of 2014.
AMD’s Mobile CPUs Are Now More Energy Efficient
So what does improved energy efficiency mean to consumers? Fo one, it contributes towards reduced battery consumption, lower energy consumption and, most importantly, reduced environmental impact. All of this is achieved without compromising the performance output of AMD’s mobile processors.
The impact of such achievement is even more apparent when put in the context of enterprise usage. AMD provided an impressive example of this: when a organisation decides to upgrade 50,000 2014 laptops to 2020 models, the organisation would save approximately 1.4 million kilowatt hours of electricity and 971,000 kg of carbon emissions—which is equivalent to 16,000 trees grown over the period of 10 years.
AMD achieved its 25×20 energy efficiency goal through the development of highly integrated and efficient SoC architecture, improving real-time power management and silicon-level power optimisations. Additionally, the company stated that not only does achieving the 25×20 deliver better experiences for users, it also demonstrates the company’s commitment towards sustainability.
