Unlocking the Locked cores

Sometimes the AMD disabled cores of good chips because they had a shortage of the cheaper chips selling very well at the time so it does not mean his chip has a bad core!! i'm sorry i do not know how to unlock the chips since that is all you were asking jesus christ people!!!!

New here, who cares.

First, i have sempy 145. yes, its locked single core processor, and i handles 4ghz oc just fine, so who's getting new processor anyway? maybe later.
The question is, to unlock the second core, you need fancy mb with UCC or ACC or whatever those are. But if AMD takes working processor,
which would work fine, then locks them somehow, then it runs at single core. How do i unlock the locked cores, so it will run fine in my mb,
without UCC or ACC. you know, revert it to original state.

Yay, use your big brains, or drag linus, and tell me a solution, or a good-enough reasoning. Thanks in advance..
and if any of you are wondering, Legend knows me by the name Ace.

get a new CPU. one core is a thing of the past and that turbo on it isn't actually that good. Save up for something like a R5 2600 or even wait for the Ryzen 3000 CPUs

i certainly know what system i should be running, or just getting a quad core chip from ebay.
So, i was asking, if any of you knows, how amd disables the core, and how we can enable it.

First, you need motherboard support to unlock the disabled core. Second, the reason your chip is a Sempron instead of an Athlon 64 X2 is because one of the cores failed QA at 2.8Ghz. Even if you get a motherboard that allows you to unlock it, the chip will not be stable as a 2.8Ghz dual core.

 

At best, you are going to have no performance gain at all (better multicore performance offset by worse single thread performance), but in all likelihood, it just won't be stable at all.

 

Either way, it's pointless.

clearly you don't know the whole thing. And there are plenty of instances where people have unlocked the cores,

and they run PERFECTLY FINE. alright, thats not the point.
if you don't know how they lock the cores or unlocking them, just don't answer, or just admit that you don't know a shit.
I'm not asking ya why cores are locked, coz i already know why they're locked. Who do you think i am? clearly, you don't need to comment nonsense on the thread where it nowhere says "why cores are locked" . read the post again.

Article dating back to 2009 on unlocking the Sempron cores

Forum thread on the same thing

 

Advanced Clock Calibration in the BIOS, if the motherboard BIOS has it I guess you could do it 🤷‍♂️

The cores were disabled at a factory level, I'd suggest emailing AMD and ask them why they don't ship all their processors with all of the cores unlocked regardless of whether or not they are 24/7, 100% load stable. Yes, you can unlock sempron cores as shown in this YouTube guide, but there is no guarantee of stability.

Yeah. I'm calling AMD to help with this one, maybe also need to buy some hardware to unlock it permanently.
