asymmetric multiprocessing (AMP)

A distinction is made between symmetric multi-core processors, the symmetric multiprocessor( SMP) and the asymmetric multiprocessors (AMP).

Whereas in symmetric multi-core processors the individual processors share the operating system and the common address space of the main memory, in asymmetric multi-core processors the processor cores are decoupled from each other. Each processor core has its own software and processes applications independently of other processor cores. The performance of a single processor core is decisive for the computing power.
