Surely that could mean the same thing.

 

It is not unknown for semiconductor manufacturers to sell the same basic product at different prices,

with a premium price for full functionality of all capabilities

and lower prices and reduced capability for a different market.

 

Does it make any difference to the consumer whether the manufacturer paid a few million for a different mask set that omits premium capabilities,

or whether he has a much cheaper way to use the premium mask set but somehow cripple or disable the premium bits before the product gets to the end user ?

That's the funny thing about english, it can be read in many different ways. Looking back at it again, I see it is simply the way Speccy is describing the support or lack thereof.
