Putting the “Heterogeneous” in the HSA Foundation

In September’s article, SMP, Asymmetric Multiprocessing, and the HSA Foundation, I explained why symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) architectures have been popular in PC and server markets, and why heterogeneous or asymmetric multiprocessing (AMP) has been the norm in mobility and consumer electronics markets. I also explained the trends that are leading PC and server markets to adopt heterogeneous architectures and introduced the HSA Foundation’s goal of making heterogeneous core chips easy to program.
