1.1. About the Cortex-A57 MPCore processor

The Cortex-A57 MPCore processor is a high-performance, low-power processor that implements the ARMv8 architecture. It has one to four processors in a single multiprocessor device, or MPCore device, with L1 and L2 cache subsystems.

Figure 1.1 shows an example block diagram of a Cortex-A57 MPCore multiprocessor configuration with four processors.
