Today, in an industry-leading effort to affirm its commitment to environmental stewardship, AMD announced a new goal to deliver a 30x increase in energy efficiency for AMD EPYC processors and AMD Instinct accelerators in AI training and High-Performance Computing (HPC) applications running on accelerated computer nodes by 2025.
In all, AMD’s 30x goal outpaces industry energy efficiency performance in these key areas by 150% compared to the previous 5-year period, saving billions of kilowatt hours of electricity and reducing the power required to complete a single calculation by 97% over five years.
This initiative is part of the company’s new goals in Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG), as highlighted in the 26th annual AMD Corporate Responsibility Report released today [link to release]. In addition to highlighting company’s accomplishments from the previous year and priorities through 2025 and 2030, this year’s report features four key ESG focus areas that guide the company’s purpose driven approach to high-performance computing: digital impact, environmental stewardship, supply chain responsibility, and diversity, belonging and inclusion.
