Arrow Exclusive: AMD's First Bulldozer Chips Arriving Sept. 26 [PC Mag]

Since there has not been an official word from AMD on this, this is still a "rumor", nevertheless, SemiAccuate was right (so far) about September 19th not being the release date and let's see if the September 26th will stick - based on PC Mag.
AMD is eyeing the Sept. 26 release date for its new Opteron 4200 series, codenamed Valencia, and Opteron 6200 series, codenamed Interlagos, according to a source familiar with the company's product roadmap.
Valencia is the next stage in AMD's Opteron 4000 series aimed at single-socket and dual-socket, cost-optimized, energy efficient servers. It will be succeeded in 2012 by a CPU codenamed Sepang that has up to ten Bulldozer cores.
...Designed for enterprise-class two-socket and four-socket servers, the Opteron 6200 series CPUs will give way in 2012 to chips codenamed Terramar—some sporting a whopping 20 Bulldozer cores."

"AMD is also set to introduce Bulldozer to the consumer market for the re-introduction of its FX brand of high-performance CPUs as early as September, according toa DigiTimes report published this week.
First up will be the eight-core FX-8150 and FX-8100 chips codenamed Zambezi, as well as the six-core FX-6100, and quad-core FX-4100, the Taiwan-based tech journal reported, citing unnamed industry sources. The FX-8150 is a 125-watt CPU, while the others all draw 95 watts, according to DigiTimes.
AMD will follow on with four more FX series chips sporting from four to eight Bulldozer cores in the first quarter of 2012, the journal reported, as well as the triple-core FX-3150 for the OEM market.
