That depends on the exact cpu you get imho, some are bad, some dont. Its just cheaper for AMD to do maintain only 1 line of quad cores and then brand them as they want instead of creating 3 lines of 2, 3 and 4 core cpus.

Also if they upgrade the microcode/instructions on the quad core, upgrades are automatically done in x3 and x2 as well 'for free'.

Linux is not UNIX! Face it! It is not an insult. It is fact: GNU is a recursive acronym for “GNU's Not UNIX”.
