How about new small die to accomodate ULP market? Like 2C/4T die and 6 CU and call it real Athlon. Then, cut it down to 1C/2T +2-3CU and voila, we have Duron.All AMD has to do is drop clocks on Picasso and it's a done deal. They're already incredibly cheap to make, and they've gotta do something with all that 12nm capacity they're still on the hook to use, so why not? At this point it's just a question of how badly they want to service the low-end market. That market is at near-zero priority with Dr. Su at the helm.
