Where are you getting this information? Every time AMD has a new line of CPUs, they change the numbering system: FX-5x = single core, FX-6x = dual core, FX-7x = dual core, dual processor. So logically the K8L-based quad core would bear the FX-8x naming scheme.
And there is no Core 2 Solo. Intel is planning on releasing a Pentium E next year, which is the single core version of the Core 2 Duo. They will also release a Celeron line, with cut down cache and bus speed. But why wait more than 6 months? Because Intel didnt have enough bad parts, so they had to wait for them to build up before selling them, or else risk a major shortage.
