Last week, Northern California citizen Tom Dickey filed a lawsuit against AMD, claiming the company inaccurately marketed its Bulldozer CPUs. His stance is AMD's design is such that the CPUs really only have four cores and are therefore not capable of performing eight instructions simultaneously, as one would expect from an 8-core CPU.

An AMD spokesperson responded to our request for comment on the matter, stating simply, "We believe our marketing accurately reflects the capabilities of the Bulldozer architecture which, when implemented in an 8-core AMD FX processor, is capable of running eight instructions concurrently."

 

No further developments in the lawsuit have surfaced since, but we'll keep you posted.
