Heterogeneous Architecture

A heterogeneous architecture is a system where different processors are used together. Heterogeneous architectures are often used in high-performance computing (HPC) systems. This type of architecture is becoming increasingly popular as more companies look to reduce costs by using commodity hardware in their data centers instead of buying specialized servers from manufacturers.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Heterogeneous Architecture

Heterogeneous architectures allow SMBs to take advantage of the strengths of each type of processor. For example, if you have a computer used for high-performance computing tasks, you can use the Intel processor while running less intensive applications on the AMD processor.
