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.

If the three core chip is really a four core chip where one of the cores is not working, is it possible that the memory controller, HT bus, and L1, L2 cache that were used by the disabled core can be used to advantage by the remaining cores?
