Default Some of AMD Phenom II X4 970 Chips Will Have Unlockable Cores

The forthcoming AMD Phenom II X4 970 Black Edition microprocessor will not only be the fastest quad-core chip from Advanced Micro Devices, but will also exist in two versions one of which has all chances to become a dream of computer enthusiasts because of possibility to unlock two additional cores.

Sources familiar with AMD's plans claims that there will be two types of AMD Phenom II X4 970 BE central processing units (CPUs): boxed versions aimed at retail market will be based on the well known code-named Deneb design that has four cores in total; tray flavours of the chips designed for system integrators and OEMs will be based on Zosma design, which is basically six-core Thuban chip with two disabled cores that can be unlocked on certain mainboards.
