Default Zambezi FX dies in Q4 2012

As per fudzilla's posting:

Zambezi FX 8150 dies in Q4 2012

" Vishera is the new kid on the block and once it comes out in Q4 2012 it won’t leave much breathing space for Zambezi 8, 6 and four cores.

According to current plans revealed to AMD partners, the last orders for FX 8150 chips can be placed in late Q4 2012. You will be able to receive your final shipment in Q1 and possibly even further but officially AMD won’t take more orders for this CPU after the end of Q4 2012."

Rest is in the link

Doesn't this usually happen when new generations come out? The old tech is killed off, and the only product sold is remaining stock...

This isn't exactly news...

I was under the impression that Vishera was a mobile proc w/ mobile proc performance, but a decent W/performance ratio. Have I not been paying enough attention?
