Why it can
Answer: When AMD produces multi-cores CPU, for some quality control issues,(such as extreme high or low temperature), AMD samples out some quadcore Phenom II / Athlon II CPU and turn it into triple core CPU for sale. Soinside of a triple core CPU, it is still a quad core internally.
How to enable it?
Answer : To enable triple core CPU into quad core CPU, you need AMD SB750/710 with EC circuit, special BIOS to allow AMD ACC (Advanced ClockCalibration) and AMD triple core CPU as well.
