AMD Soon Puts An End To single-core A64s

Single-core for Sempron only

| Posted: Jul 4, 2007 12:37 am

After revealing fresh details on AMD's upcoming Phenom FX series, Dailytech have also brought to everyone's attention that AMD won't be going ahead with their 'Lima' crop of chips. These were going to keep single-core Athlon64 type CPUs sitting at the bottom of their production line, though now they plan to leave that area purely for Sempron (once the current Orleans Athlon 64 chips reach EOL that is).

 


AMD roadmaps reveal the company recently cancelled its single-core Lima processor, the 65nm Athlon 64 refresh. This leaves AMD with existing Orleans-based processors to carry the Athlon 64 brand.
