RejZor you have right, but look at this case like that:
You are developing something that cost 150$. People with 150$ dollars in the pocket would buy it, but people with 100$ would't. They will buy cheaper model. If they get 50$ they would be glad to upgrade their stuff.
It would be nice to know that your CPU has unlockable potential. I would be so happy to know, that for 50$ my Q9550 could have turbo technology or 2 more cores. It's just about creating right products for low budget by locking features of better products. Everyone does it. Even on cars. I bought Seat Ibiza (2000 year model) with 75 horses. The only difference between my model and 100 HP model is firmware !!! If I had some cash I would go to Seat dealer and buy that 25 horses for my ride.
