Guys, guys. What do you think? That AMD got speacial line for making 3 core Phenoms and special one for 4 core Phenoms?
It is damn obvious that all Phenoms are made with FOUR functional (!) cores and one is disabled for the 3rd core Phenoms. There is only one reason - profit. It is much cheaper to disable the core according to the CPU ID in the bios microcode that make separate hardware versions of CPUs, let alone separate 3rd and 4rd cores testing... That whould be expensive. The bios trick is not.
Conclusion - that is why AMD is angry now :)
