AMD Cancels 'Lima'

Advanced Micro Devices roadmaps reveal the company recently cancelled its single-core Lima processor, the 65nm Athlon 64 refresh. This means Orleans-based processors will be the last to carry the Athlon 64 brand after which AMD will position entry-level dual-core Athlon X2 processors based on Rana in the low end. With Lima out of the picture, Sparta will be the next new single-core AMD processor. AMD expects to launch Sparta in September 2007 in 256KB and 128KB L2 configurations. Sparta arrives as a replacement for Orleans and Manila-core processors and essentially a 65nm die-shrink of Manila. Expect Sparta to take Lima's place beginning in September.
