But that’s not all, AMD has still more Bulldozer processors to be released by next year, first quarter of 2012. These are the higher-end models that has a Thermal Design Power or TDP of 125W and 95W. These are also 8-core processors namely AMD FX-8170 and FX-8120.

This Q4 marks the beginning of a new generation war between Intel’s second generation processors and ivy bridge processors against the first wave of AMD’s FX Llano and Bulldozer processors. Next year will be the real match between Intel’s Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge-E, and more of AMD’s Bulldozer processors.

Currently, in terms of price and performance, AMD is still the “smarter choice”, IMHO. But if you want pure core power, Intel’s second generation processors are still king of the ring.
