Energy-related benefits of Moore’s Law are slowing down at the same time the number of connected devices is exploding and the level of performance demanded by consumers is rising. These trends are forcing the tech industry to consider alternative ways to improve processor performance and efficiency. With the development of new processor architectures, power efficient design innovations, and power management techniques, AMD has its sights set on the goal of accelerating the energy efficiency of its Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) 25x by 2020.
