quote KolothWell, if it is a failed core it really isn't a waste of money it is actually a way to save manufacturing cost. Instead of having to dump all the defective dies they can just disable a core and keep the rest. And the end user should save a bit since they are technically getting a defective product. Kind of an ingenious way to saving the defective product, if that is indeed what they did. If they did it on purpose then that is a bit wasteful and pointless. Of course if it is just a disabled core perhaps some hardcore over clockers could find a way to enable the fourth core and make it a cheap way to get a quad core proc.
