Heterogeneous Architecture

A heterogeneous architecture is a computing system architecture in which processors use more than one instruction set, all of which share a single memory. This requires programs to be written differently for each of the dissimilar instruction sets. The goal is to offer substantially better performance or cost by devoting the appropriate parts of the application to machine designs optimized for specific types of computing.
