They accused AMD for false advertising, Fraud breach of express warrant, negligent misrepresentation and unjust enrichment.

The lawsuit alleged that AMD claiming their Bulldozer CPU had 8 cores, that means their CPU can perform eight calculation at the same time, but the reality is this CPU have only four cores. AMD designed their CPU by stripping away components from two cores and combined the leftover to make a single module. For that reason the cores are no longer working independently.
