AMD AMD announced plans to introduce a desktop PC processor with three cores in the first quarter of 2008. The three-core chip will carry the same Phenom brand name that AMD plans to attach to its quad-core desktop chips due to ship to PC companies by the end of this year.

They can get better processor yields then by simply disabling silicon with busted cores on it.

Either way, this whole core madness is crazy. The difference between 3 and 4 cores for the average user would be negligible at best.
