When configuring a single sided vPC both switches must be the same model, ie a pair of N5Ks or a pair of N7Ks. With vPC each switch retains its own control plane and data plane. Control messages and data frames flow between the active and standby switches via the peer link.

With double sided vPC you can have a pair of N5Ks and a pair of N7Ks. See the link below for details:
