Detailed info on AMD's upcoming Bulldozer (Zambezi-FX) processors has hit the Internet with Chinese website claiming that the B2 Revisions of the CPU's have hit production and would be on shelves by late Q3 2011. The Bulldozer CPU's have been delayed because of a performance-related bug, with the B2 revision going into mass production sometime in August 2011 and hit markets by September 2011.

The first two CPU's based on the B2 revisions will be the FX-8150 (FD8150FRW8KGU) Featuring 8Cores/8Threads, 8MB L3 Cache, Stock Frequency of 3.6Ghz (Turbo - 4.2Ghz) while the other FX-8120 (FD8120FRW8KGU) is also an 8 Core CPU with same specs and just a little low clock frequency of 3.1Ghz (T.C - 4.1Ghz).
