The transition from full synchronization (coherent motion) to two-cluster dynamics is studied for a system of N globally coupled logistic maps. When increasing the nonlinearity parameter of the individual map, new periodic and strongly asymmetric two-cluster states are found to emerge in the same order as the periodic windows arise in the logistic map. These strongly asymmetric two-cluster states are generally first to stabilize when reducing the coupling strength. Similar phenomena are also observed for a system of globally coupled Henon maps.
