That says nothing about bulldozer. Just the features of MSI's 990 series chipset/bios features. Can you really expect them to remove features on a new chipset? no. Close the thread.

With just the a single push of a button OC Genie II not only increases your processor and memory speeds, it also unlocks up to 8 CPU cores
correct me if i am wrong but Athlons and Phenom II's only have up to 6 cores and will never have 8.

and evil why close the thread this is a forum, the whole point is discussion or am I missing something obvious? and been doing it wrong all along?

actually the Zambezi Proccessors are supposably to have 8 cores, the Bulldozer proccessors in a later time might be locked down Zambezi Proccessors like how they did with the Athlons and Phenoms most notably the x2 555 Processor being unlocked to a Quad core matching nearly to the 955 Phenom II. soo Core unlock for the 990x Proccessors is a good possibility.

the only problem is if any BD information was found these days, a lot of people must jump out there to argue "It's a rumor!" you'd better to post on another "rumor" section then here

Oh my.. If this is true then MSI FTW! I'll probably still buy the 6/8 core CPU depending on price and/or performance.

if this is true, I'd say bd may similar to Phenom's position, add unlock feature for more marketing competitive
