Here's another update about the unlocking of the fourth core
on triple-core Phenom II X3 processors. The previous articles said this may only work on processors made in the fourth week of 2009 (batch 0904), but German techsite Hartware
just informed us they've done the trick on a Phenom II X3 720 from week 51, 2008.
Not only Phenom II X3 CPUs from week 4 can have their fourth core
activated, we did this successfully on a Phenom II X3 720 from week 51.
