AMD APUs to Become Efficient Faster Than Moore's Law

Quote
AMD wants its APUs to be 25 times more efficient by the year 2020. The company indicated that over the last six years (an equal time period from today till 2020), its products became about ten times more efficient. The company also recognized that if such improvements take place, the company will be outpacing Moore's law by about 70 percent.

What's the status of Moore law now that transistors grow too small for conventional electronics (still an exponential increase)? I've had the impression that they have had trouble keeping up. However, efficiency while not identical to the amount and size of transistors of the law, is related to it, but perhaps not in a way which would break it in the "good" way.

What's the status of AMD CPUs in comparison to Intel now anyway? I'm thinking of getting a new CPU next month.
Heckling is an art, and game hacking a science.

any quad core at 3 ghz will play everything you can throw at it if you have a decent graphics card to back it up.
