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

We also build instead of buying from an OEM (about 100 pc's). I put a 3500 in all of them. There simply is no need in our company to have 2 cores. Our main system still resides on an AS400 so most of the work is done on the server side. Even our newer sytems are SQL based and still most of the work is offloaded to the server. Most companies are this way most of the CPU usage is on the servers not the clients. Dual core for business is overkill in most cases. Now since it is just $30 more most get it anyway, but I think it is just a waste of $3000.

I'm in the same boat. Our machines are running P4 3.0 cpu's, and it's ALWAYS fast enough. We're also still running a lot of work on the AS400, which is archaic to say the least. The money it would cost our company to upgrade to dual cores would be ridiculous. Plus, it wouldn't benefit productivity at all. None of the software we're using is going to utilize 2 cores, so what's the point?
