Abstract: The premise of heterogeneous computing is a reflection of Amdahl’s law. Computation is a mix of serial and parallel sections. Serial sections should run on a fast serial, or latency optimized, processor. Parallel sections should run on an efficient parallel throughput processor. Homogeneous solutions strain to balance serial performance and efficiency.
