The next-generation processor architecture from AMD is still far away, while the first 32nm processors from AMD will be launched in late 2010, it seems this won't include the Bulldozer chips. TC Mag reports the 32nm Bulldozer architecture is slated for volume production in 2011, which is a lot later than expected.
Back in 2007, AMD said it hoped to deliver its first Bulldozer processors in 2009 on the 45nm process but that plan got canned. The first Bulldozer CPUs will use the 32nm process, they will have more than four cores, over 8MB of L3 cache and an integrated DDR3 memory controller.
Although saying that it pulled up 32nm processor introduction from 2011 to Q4 2010, AMD doesn't plan on releasing 32nm desktop parts sooner. The SSE5-supporting Bulldozer family of CPUs is currently still set for late 2010 sampling and volume production in 2011, making AMD rely on the current architecture for probably longer than it should.
