I don't think it is the same thing they are doing with the GPUs. With the GPUs they are close to the end of their lifespan, and AMD was just flooding the market with as many as possible to get them sold.
With the processors, the new Phenom II architecture is just being released. So they are just filling in the line-up. It is pretty common for a new architecture to get a lot of new processors early on. And the new processors are actually filling holes in the line-up, unlike the GPUs which are just reconfigurations that ended up having little difference compared to GPUs that were already on the market.
