AMD senior vice president and chief marketing officer Nigel Dessau had an imaginary interview with himself in a blog post. Most of it is some bashing of the Nehalem-based Xeon processors, but he also confirms that the next-generation Bulldozer architecture from AMD won't arrive until 2011:
We have demonstrated that our upcoming 6-core “Istanbul” processor, which is on track for launch in the second half of this year, is compatible with existing OEM platforms for a faster time to benefit. In early 2010, AMD plans to introduce our next-generation “Maranello” platform that will feature the 12-core “Magny-Cours” processor as well as serve as the platform for our “Bulldozer” architecture in 2011. The debate will continue.
