Actually shooting myself in the foot here, Krait is not such a great example because although you can use difference between frequencies you are less likely to use different tunables (not inconceivable but unlikely). The best examples systems are multi cluster and hereterogeneous systems, like the recently announced Samsung Exynos 5 octa http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exynos_(system_on_chip). We will see more systems like this appearing, sporting low power cores combined with high performance ones, all running at the same time. I appreciate this is all very new, but more will come, and the requirement to have different tunables per cluster is very real. In ARM on our own multi cluster test chip, using an experimental version of this approach, we have seen good improvements in power consumption without compromising performance.
