Aren't the triple cores just quad cores that have had a core failed during manufacturing.?

Probably not a problem but that idea worries me??

i imagine they are as tested as any model in the range, same thing has been happening in mid-range graphics cards for years, and that is an even busier market

From Wiki:

* 900 series: Flagship series with full complement of cores and L3 cache enabled.
* 800 series: These are chips with some amount of defect in the cache; 2MB of cache is disabled, leaving the chip with 4MB of cache and fully operational cores.
* 700 series: These chips have one faulty core, which is disabled, leaving it with three operational cores (marketed as "X3", as opposed to "X4") and a fully operational cache.
