I just found this article, and then i went ahead and edited the wikipedia page.

from wikipedia:

Products implementing the Bulldozer core are planned for release in 2011,[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amd_bulldozer#cite_note-0) supposedly during the CeBIT gathering in Germany, which starts May 1st, and goes through May 5th.[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amd_bulldozer#cite_note-1)[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amd_bulldozer#cite_note-2)[4] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amd_bulldozer#cite_note-3)CeBIT's website (http://www.cebit.de/home)

XBitLab's article on it (http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/cpu/display/20110227225120_AMD_to_Showcase_Bulldozer_Microproc essors_at_CeBIT_Trade_Show.html). This is the first one i found, then i did some more googling.

Softpedia's article on it. (http://news.softpedia.com/news/AMD-Confirmed-to-Release-New-CPUs-at-CeBIT-Most-Probably-Bulldozer-Chips-186713.shtml)

This is just in time for my next computer build-- my core2 duo (one of the very first ones) is aging quickly...

So, how long will it be before Newegg caries Bulldozer-based chips?

So, I you going to get an 8 core or a 6 core cpu? Personally, I'd be more then happy if AMD got back into laptops to pose some competition to Intel.

accited? 'excited' perhaps?

Sorry, grammar/spelling nazi mode disabled.

Anyway, yes the chipset does look nice. It'll be interesting to see how it benchmarks in real world applications :)
