The recent development of microprocessors has raise up the demand for high-performance and fast processing computing systems capable of performing multiple tasks. Multi-core processors are being accepted to achieve higher performance but maintaining sustainable power consumption is still an issue. Hence, the need for developing alternatives for modern CMPS is highly indispensable. In this paper, therefore, the authors have proposed a method of effective core switching based on the processes workload, so as to maintain the level of performance, with significant reduction in the power dissipation of a multi-core processor.
