  • To meet the needs of a diverse range of workloads, asymmetric multicore processors (AMPs) have been proposed, which feature cores of different microarchitecture or ISAs. [...] Key Method By classifying the techniques on several key characteristics, we underscore their similarities and differences. We clarify the terminology used in this research field and identify challenges that are worthy of future investigation. We hope that more than just synthesizing the existing work on AMPs, the contribution of this…Expand Abstract
