Yeah. Turbo was one, some power management was another, and some minor stuff. It is in the CPU just that the stepping we used was either disabled or buggy. This is normal development stuff, not anything major and most of it seems to be firmware and optimizations, not basic functionality.

I am aware of the open bug counts on A1 and A2 and am very optimistic based on the changes. The next step (A3/4th rev of Zen) should have the last few stamped out long before release. It was stable enough to play Doom on last June so....
