AMD: Bulldozer performance-per-Watt to rise 50% by 2014

Posted on Thursday, October 13 2011 @ 22:29:14 CEST by

X-bit Labs reports AMD plans to increase the performance-per-Watt of its Bulldozer architecture by 10-15 percent each year.
The long-awaited Bulldozer micro-architecture was so late to market that it fails to impress and its performance looks pale in comparison with the latest central processing units from Intel Corp. based on Sandy Bridge micro-architecture. Nonetheless, AMD remains optimistic and expects its next-generation designs to boost performance-per-watt of its products by up to 50% by 2014.

AMD has a rather strong and clear roadmap for the period of the following three years with the aim to increase performance-per-watt of its high-performance cores by approximately 10% - 15% every year. In practice, this transforms into 33% - 52% speed boost of Excavator micro-architecture compared to Bulldozer. Technologically, AMD wants to improve IPC (instructions per clock) performance and reduce power consumption at the same time, which transforms into higher clock-speeds.
