I am very interested in this processor in view of its 45W TDP in a socket application.  My understanding of this subject matter is that the 2nd core can be available if your BIOS supports the functionality and the 'luck of the draw' works in your favor with regard to your 145.  My concern is statistics can also work against us and I have no desire to collect cpu's to see this idea through to fruition.

Can anyone characterize the success rate of accessing the 2nd core in the 145?

I doubt that anyone has realistic statistics on the success rate of unlocking additional cores. It's pretty much spend your money and take your chances.


Technical ignorance is NOT a destiny it is a choice. Do your homework so that you can make technically informed decisions and not be duped by advertising hype or mis-information stated as fact when its not.
