AMD have not stopped since the Bulldozer launch, and 2012 is set to be release after release, hopefully. Leaked slides from Turkish-based site Donanim Haber show that the 1090FX and 1070 will arrive as part of the 10-series chipset family for current FX-Series processors as well as any other AM3+ chips.

It will throw away the SB850 south bridge component on the 900-series line, which has been on-board for roughly 18 months now, and instead it will rely on the new SB1060 south bridge that provides up to eight SATA 6Gbps ports.

The 1090FX chipset is set to sport native USB 3.0 support and enough lanes for some dual x16 graphics action, but those same features didn't make it for the lower-end 1070. PCI Express Gen 3.0 is also missing on the 10-series, unfortunately. We shouldn't see support for the new PCIe 3.0 interface on AMD chipsets until Piledriver hits, sometime next year.
