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.

I guess that if Intel were facing a problem like this one they would just burn another core and sell it as a dual core processor, and they would not have to justify a three core processor (i.e. explain that they are selling a working faulty processor) or have a cheaper processor competing with their hi end four core processors.
