Is it true? 2 watt led has 1 diode, and 3 watt led 2 diodes?

Is it true? 2 watt led has 1 diode, and 3 watt led 2 diodes?

or can a 3 watt 700ma have both?

Different configurations and of diodes can be found in all shapes and sizes of power led;
One of the first 'power' leds was the luxeon Star, a hexagonal six diode 1-watt arrangement; it's whatever suits the design best. If the individual diodes consume different amounts of power the overall rating can be any combination that makes up that total rating.
Like Frollard says, I wouldn't rely on it at all. I rather doubt it, because it won't change the total power to be dissipated in the package, and that's the limit.
