This one is worth a quick read. Doesn't provide specific answers (the best software system depends on your application) but the discussion on using multi-core to save power vs a smaller single core processor was interesting to me. Maybe there will be a good market for small, multi-core MCUs if there are enough power saving modes included.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
