Is HTC still locking their bootloaders or have they stopped doing that?
The HTC One X, for Sprint anyway, will probably use the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Krait chipset, which is dual core, but still a beast that will easily hold its own. The GSM version of that handset will use the Tegra 3, which is quad core. The Sprint Samsung Galaxy Nexus will probably have the same dual core TI OMAP processor it has in the Verizon one, which is using a last generation GPU, by the way.

I believe HTC will probably always lock their bootloaders from now on. They will provide an online unlocking tool as they have with handsets dating all the way back to the T-Mobile HTC G1. It is not exactly the same as having a fully NAND unlocked handset though. The development community would have to work on that.
