P3041 Power with 1 or 2 cores

Hello All,


In my power-sensitive application with P3041 I'll enable just one or two of its cores. At the P3041EC Power characteristics chapter (2.4), it is considered both quad-cores and dual-cores situations. But the P3041 devices are just quad-cores. Does the dual-cores information at the document refer to a situation where it's being used just two cores of the quad-core devices? If that's correct, why the power drops so little, comparing to a quad-core operation, exposed at the same document?


Thanks in advance,
