AMD's doing the same thing, essentially. There will be 3 products utilizing the Bulldozer name. Next year (whenever) is supposed to see the release of enhanced Bulldozer (running on a new socket, so probably not the same thing as you mention) and an APU using a Bulldozer CPU. They're also releasing newer steppings of the current architecture.
But, meh, the Core i7-3960X will slap anything currently in existence silly.
