Recently, the importance of multicore processor system is growing rapidly. Multicore processors are classified either as symmetric or asymmetric. Asymmetric multicore processors consist of a high performance complex core and number of low performance simple cores, and are known to be more efficient than symmetric multicore processors. Therefore, performance impact on various configurations of asymmetric multi-core processor needs to be studied. Using SPEC 2000 benchmarks as input, the trace-driven simulation has been performed for different asymmetric quad-core and octa-core processors and compared to the corresponding symmetric ones.
