For a ThinkPad T420 with a quad-core CPU, where the TDP of the CPU (45W) is greater than the maximum supported TDP of the T420 (35W), would disabling two of the cores of the CPU (through this method) bring the CPU back within the 35W maximum? (A pointless question I know, as if you're disabling half of a quad core, you may as well use an dual core, but I'm curious).

Did any T420 ship with a quad core?
All US specs I find show dual core.
