      Also known as "big.LITTLE" in ARM design, and it's a pretty old concept as well.

        For the kids watching from home:
        This is an image of a Cylon Hybrid (human-looking machine of evil machine empire) from the Battlestar Galactica universe.
        I had to ask Google image search about wtf is this from, I've never been a fan of BG myself.

        EDIT: now more generic

          Isn't this from the new Battlestar Galactica? I don't remember Cylon-Human hybrids from the Original BSG.

            Might be, as I said, I don't know much about that myself.

              This is basically Intel's version of what ARM calls big.LITTLE which they had since 2011 so Intel is 9 years late.

                What a Topology challenge: can't wait to have one of those to refractor software

                  800MHz base clock? that's slow enough that it might be comparable to Libre-SOC's quadcore processor in multithreaded performance! lkcl

                    should all happen in the OS, the scheduler will move threads around to "better cores".

                    Just look at what big.LITTLE does on ARM, applications don't care, it's the kernel that moves threads around, enables/disables cores as needed.
