More means you can kiss any real tweaking at the silicon level good bye. They wont take the time to redesign (by hand) and re-spin it....they will simply put the man hours into the NEXT gen / bulldozer replacement.
Got to wonder if this was the real reason a certain head honcho left as they knew it was going to under-perform...but it was too late and had to push it out the door.

The upside is IF that is indeed the case, they may have learned their lesson and the next one in the lineup will NOT be a dud....hopefully.
