Can processors switch between running full physical cores and clusters multi cores.
When looking at processors I noticed that AMD 8-core processors only ran 4 clustered multi-thread cores. What I want to know is if those processors can run at 4 full cores for games that only support 4 cores and what would be the boost to the single core thread rate if so.

AMD CPUs run 8 physical cores, in pairs that share resources (Modules) So there are 8 cores in 4 modules, and they cant change from that configuration.
