The Core CPU was introduced in 2005 and disappeared quickly after the
introduction of the first mobile version of the Core 2 in fall 2006 (all
dates from memory, no guarantee). Also, the Core 2 was never produced as
a "Solo" variant.
But I am pretty sure that the Atom is still manufactured as a 32 Bit
CPU, at least some models.
