Turn Your AMD Phenom 2 Three Core CPU into a Quad Core CPU - Turn Your AMD Phenom 2 Three Core CPU into a Quad Core CPU
Wed, March 25 2009 | 12:03PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Apparently customers that own an AMD Phenom II processor can turn the 3 cores into 4 cores, or make it a quad core without any hardware modifications. According to the source, it requires a Biostar motherboard but some other motherboard's might have the same feature located in the BIOS. Be warned though, usually when AMD or Intel ships a CPU with one of the cores disabled, it's because they probably had issues with running the extra core on that specific CPU. It could be due to heating, performance, or some other issue.
