likely, they just had very few bad x6's and decided to lower the price on them, instead of making an x4 to fill the gap.
Agreed. Im sure the binning process is much better now, so fewer defective cores are being found, resulting in higher yeilds of full X6's.
Distributed Computing Hardware
CPU: i5 3570K and i5 2400 = 8 cores (Crunching for TPU atm)
GPU: 7870 (8 wu's) and 7770 (4 wu's) = 1920 GCN cores (Folding for TPU atm)
