What are clusters in processor

Processor Cluster

What is a cluster ? Basically in local languages it means levels.
Now what are clusters in processors and how they work to give the optimum performance consuming less power.
Let us take an example to understand it well.
A proccesor having two clusters(level), one clocked at 2.0 GHz and the other one at 1.5 GHz, then both of them will not work together one with more clock speed will invoke only while performing heavy task such as gaming, editing etc . The other one clocked at 1.5 GHz will invoke while performing daily task or while the device is in idle mode, to save more power and to give best possible performance.
Here we have taken two cluster level, but there may be many processor clock speeds in the device but the concept is just same as of the given example.
