I understand the HW is present. I'm saying it is not tested above the minimum specs.
He has written "...especially the cost of testing if a CPU is overclocking-stable - correct.".

So the savings comes from standardization, less testing, ability to use 2nd choice memory. Then it is just a game of probablity and product placement.

I think it is really clever. It would be interesting if he can comment about probability of not having a feature work after unlock. This would prove or not my guessing.
