Calculating the Potential of Computing Efficiency

Energy Efficiency of Computing: What’s Next? Electronic Design, November 28, 2016 For a long time, processor performance and peak output energy efficiency moved forward together at a rapid clip. The gains started well before 1965, the year Gordon Moore published his first projection.  Peak output efficiency doubled about every 1.6 years from the dawn of


Key Factors Limiting Supercomputing Efficiency Progress

New report on energy-efficient computing Phys.org, October 20, 2015.
