The current generations of multi-core processors have successfully improved upon their single-core predecessors, in terms of performance, power consumption, and thermal properties. Hardware parallelism (in the form of the number of cores per processor) has taken the place of clock speed as the specification of first interest when describing a processor. Asymmetric multi-core computing (where various cores have different performance, architectural, and functional characteristics) is a likely… CONTINUE READING
