AMD has added three new Zambezi/Bulldozer CPUs to its line-up in 2012, according to a leaked roadmap.

Donamihaber has published a slide showing that FX-4150, FX-8120 and FX-6120 models are due to be released in Q1, which means they could land any time between now and April.
 
The FX-4150 is a quad-core processor with a base speed of 3.9GHz, a Turbo clock of 4.1GHz and 12MB of L2 and L3 cache. Next up, is the six core FX-6120 with a base speed of 3.5GHz, a Turbo clock of 4.1Ghz and 14MB of cache. Finally, the eight core FX-8140 has a base clock of 3.2GHz, a Turbo clock of 4.1GHz and 16MB cache. Each CPU is rated with a 95W TDP.



AMD also plans to release its quad-core Trinity APU models with A10 and A8 processors in Q2 2012, followed by A6 and A4 dual-core versions in Q3. It’s rumoured that the Piledriver-based Trinity CPUs will also land in Q3.

Yawn AMD.. Unless the user is stuck for space or is a troll who plays all games on 720p set at Minimum graphics these processors are no use. MB is dearer than Z68 counterpart and in terms of computing simple i3 2100 does better job. Never mind video encoding.

I game on a AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE (3.4 Stock) with 8Gb 1600 ram and a MSI GTX 570 Twin Frozr 3.

Everything runs fine in 1920x1080 (1080p) 16 AF, MSAA & FXAA enabled when both are available and detail maxxed out in all other settings. I usually get between 45 and 60 FPS depending on the game and it runs absolutely fine.

So the whole thing with 720p and minimum visuals what you have stated is a joke, I suggest that you look into things a bit further before making bold statements like that.

As for the troll comment I would seriously reconsider not using that again or you may find yourself on the receiving end of some sort of ban in the future. You are a newish member here and a comment like that is not going to go down to well with the rest of the community.
This is why Intel can afford to artificially delay Ivy Bridge, we desperately need another breakthrough chip from AMD

Corrected :p
Basically in four to five months AMD have done the following:

FX8150 - 125W. No change

FX8120 - 125W at launch. Touted 95W version only available in December from a few retailers in China. Now all FX8120 are 95W,not some.

FX8140 - 100MHZ speed bump of FX8120 and still 95W

FX6200 - new 125W TDP FX6100 series SKU with a 600MHZ speed bump over the 95W FX6100.

FX6120 - 200MHZ speed bump over the FX6100 at the same 95W TDP

FX4170 - new 125W TDP SKU with a 600MHZ speedbump over the 95W FX4100

FX4120 - new 95W TDP SKU with a 300MHZ speedbump over the 95W FX4100

It does seem things are improving a bit more. Hopefully,Vishera will be out sooner than later though. Usually AMD has only 100MHZ speed bumps at the same TDP every three to six months.
