ok, before socket am2 was lauched i knew that there will be only two single core A64 processors: The athlon 64 3500+ and 3800+, along with their low energy versions, but now, i am seeing Athlon 64 3000 and 3200+ based on a manila core... yet i am not seeing them on any charts or in any official AMD roadmaps...

What's with them?

Looks like AMD has turned the energy efficient manufacturing to dual cores only (an example is the X2 3600+) where it makes more sense.

yes, but the processors i was talking about are single core, and are using the sempron core(manila) even though they are Athlon 64 (single core)

who cares about energy efficiency. jsut go for a socket 939 and get x2 4800.

Well, semprons are not celerons; they're much closer to Athlons @ same frequency so you can go for a Sempron 3600+ or 3500+ if you like and have A64 3200+ performance.
Of course it is not yet 35W but lower than an A64.

i know what semprons are, but that was not what i asked. my question was: why are they Athlon 64 with Manila core on sale, but yet not on any AMD official roadmap?
