Apple's "chop" die

Apple's M1 Pro die is identical to the M1 Max die, except it has the bottom part cut off - see https://cdn.arstechnica.net/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Screen-Shot-2021-10-18-at-1.20.47-PM.jpg

I assume that's done to save engineering time and maybe even allows for using a single mask set if duplicate sets with the bottom removed can be produced?

I've never seen this done before. Is it not that uncommon and I just haven't encountered it, or is this as unusual as it appeared to me when I saw it?
