AMD roadmaps reveal the company recently cancelled its single-core

AMD began shipping Lima inventory earlier this year, however, the company since removed the codename from its roadmap. “65nm Lima Athlon 64 single-core models have been removed from the roadmap and EOL on several Orleans models has been modified,” the AMD roadmap states.
This leaves AMD with existing

When the next architecture generation start stacking up loads of chips with one one good core, we'll see single-core action again. The prospects are interesting though: What if these single-core chips still had working cache on all three levels? Sure three executable cores would be cut-off from working, but if the cache was still viable- what kind of performance would a single-core chip see from 512kb L2 and, say, 2mb L3?
Even more interesting would be if you could plop two of these into a socket 1207 board. Dual-core, but comprised of two separate super-cores! You'd have a system running with (given, they are physically independent of one another) 1mb L2, and 4mb L3 for only two cores!
