Scott Herkelman, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Graphics Business Unit of AMD, recently accepted an interview with club386 media, saying that consumers are more sensitive to the power consumption of graphics cards on laptops and relatively concerned about the power consumption of desktops.
Herkelman part of the content is as follows:
AMD proactively improves the performance per watt of its products in the early days, and we rigorously review the specific performance in each chart before launching a chip.
These parameters are important for both laptops and desktops, but may not apply to everyone. Although many users are really concerned about power consumption, there are also many people who don’t care. But generally speaking, our development trend is to develop processors with higher performance per watt.
Power consumption is definitely the primary consideration. In the foreseeable future, as our technology matures, designs improve, and processes are upgraded, we will do better and better in terms of power consumption.
It is undeniable that we still have a lot to improve, one of which is the power consumption in the idle state. It is confirmed that it can be repaired later by driver update.
However, during the actual push, we encountered inconsistent performance at idle, and we are working with our partners to resolve these issues. These problems are relatively tricky, but I believe that if you give us a little time, we can fix them.
