[Guru3d] AMD wants to increase performance per cycle by more than 7 percent annually
Our colleagues from Anandtech interviewed AMD's Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Mark Papermaster. AMD wants to continue to bring new processors to the market in a 12 to 18-month cadence and thereby exceed the current industry standard of 7 percent annual IPC increase - converted to one and a half years, this would correspond to 10.7 percent.
"We have previously noticed that the industry is experiencing slow 7% annual growth in single-thread performance, and our goal is to outperform each generation of our products. With our latest products, we do better than that Industry cut off and industry expectations exceeded. "
