Many computer architects believe that architectures consisting of heterogeneous processors will be the dominant architectural design in the future: simulation studies indicate that, for a given area and power budget, heterogeneous multiprocessors can offer an order of magnitude better performance for typical workloads. Looking at the consequences of Moore's Law even further in the future, some computer architectures are projecting that the authors will transition from the current era of multiprocessor scaling to an era of \"Dark silicon\", in which switches become so dense that it is not economically feasible to cool the chip if all switches are simultaneously powered.
