The next generation of products from both AMD and Nvidia will be one of the most interesting yet, combining a process node switch and a big change in GPU architecture for both companies, meaning that next generation products may have some of the largest leaps in performance we have ever seen. 

AMD’s CEO Lisa Su has teased that AMD’s performance per watt of their GPUs will be double that of previous generations, which will give AMD products a much better time in mobile products like laptops and hopefully allow their desktop oriented products to run much cooler.  

 

We are also focused on delivering our next generation GPUs in 2016 which is going to improve performance per watt by two times compared to our current offerings, based on design and architectural enhancements as well as advanced FinFET products process technology.

With VR headsets launching soon and power efficiency becoming a larger and larger concern for PC builders increasing the performance of products while maintaining a low TDP has never been more important. Hopefully these claims for AMD hold true for their next generation product stack as a 2x increase in performance per watt for a single generation is highly impressive. 

While this 2x increase in performance per watt may not equal a 2x increase in performance, this increase in TDP should hopefully mean that AMD’s next generation products will have a 60+ percent performance improvement when compared to their current offerings.
