We’ve learned that AMD’s truly next generation CPU codenamed Bulldozer should be out of the labs in late 2010. This is not Deneb / Phenom done right, it's a complete new architecture.

Since this is AMDs brand new architecture, the company is optimistic about it and we believe that initial shipments won’t start until much later in 2011.

We also learned that Bulldozer at start comes as an eight core CPU, but we would not exclude the possibility of other core iterations. Intel plans to have Sandy Bridge, its new 32nm architecture in 2011 and plans a refresh in 22nm called Ivy Bridge.
