Ads watchdog underclocks reseller's 9.2GHz AMD CPU claim

Seen it before...

I've seen this stuff before. I don't remember the reseller, but back in the old days, when dual core chips first started getting popular, there was a british reseller ad I got via spam (had to look, just because I thought maybe aliens had landed and changed everything) that claimed a clock speed of 5.2GHz. Reading the fine print, I saw they were adding the 2 cores of a dual core 2.6MHz cpu. We laughed about it in our irc channel for awhile. And now it's making big news...maybe I should have written an article about it back then...

Quack...

I really would like to see the gaming systems tested with this.

I'll give Intel credit for not coming up with a "tri-core" version simply because the chip didn't pass QA.
