    I know. But a '3 core' bulldozer architecture on an APU seems like something that would only be done with defective silicon, not something that would be rolled out at release, but later on, maybe, to salvage silicon and squeeze out a bit more profit. The point is that it's bad PR, highlighting poor silicon yields. AMD just got rid of its old marketing people.
    Bad PR because artificially fusing one core in one module is going to piss off the people who will buy it thinking they can unlock, because it won't be a simple unlock if its bad silicon, that would be a loss of profit to AMD. APUs make money for AMD. It's not the same situation as the Phenom x2 and x3.
    Fake.
