ARM is pitching the concept called "Big.Little" in which lower-power cores are mixed with high-performance cores to provide balanced computing. For example, a smartphone could have high-performance cores to handle demanding applications, with low-power cores to handle lower-level tasks like phone calls.
A balanced computing engine, on the other hand, may not peak so high, but often has a broader range of applications that run acceptably well because it is easier for software developers to write code for them.
