In the hardware documentation for the x20, it indicates it uses the Tri-Cluster Deca-Core CPU Architecture using
Dual-core ARM@Cortex-A72 MPCoreTM operating at up to 2.3GHz
Quad-core ARM@Cortex-A53 MPCoreTM operating at up to 1.85GHz
Quad-core ARM@Cortex-A53 MPCoreTM operating at up to 1.4GHz
Quad-core Mail T880, operating at up to 700MHz
Two ARM@Cortex-R4 processors operating at up to 800MHz for MD MCU
Are these acting independent of one another, or is this truly just a hardware “cluster” and the OS determines which set of cores takes on which workload ?
Also, if the OS handles the workload delegation, when is Linaro, ie Linux, going to be officially supported and/or has anyone attempted to build their own Linux images for use ?
Please excuse my ignorance, this is the first I’ve seen this “combined” architecture.
