Being able to map workloads to the right size cores makes a big difference in power consumption and performance.
ARM’s Ben and Otilia put a human face big on processing — who sleeps, who works, when they do each, and and what’s behind their decision.
Check out the video:
big.LITTLE uses a heterogeneous multi-core approach to power optimization, where high-performance CPU cores are combined with the most efficient CPU cores to deliver peak-performance capacity, higher sustained performance, and increased parallel processing performance, at significantly lower average power. The underlying software automatically and seamlessly moves workloads to the appropriate CPU core based on performance needs.
