Maybe i've missed it somewhere.

I was mistaking something James said in the last issue about a new era of CPUs (APUs and Integrated Graphics), the "Next-gen" AMD CPU reviews promised in the next issue (this issue) and didn't realise that we were on about a whole other level of architecture.
Let's just get this clear, is Bulldozer the FM1 socket?

Llano on the other hand is an APU, and uses Socket FM1.

What you're getting confused by is the 'coming next month in Custom PC' section in the back of the mag as in Issue 95 we said we'd be looking at next gen AMD processors in the next mag (96). Unfortunately one of the articles in this section is fake, it always is, as is explained at the bottom of the section.
The fact we said that the AMD processors we'd be looking at would be 12 core APUs and that we'd be clocking them to 17GHz using liquid helium should be a pretty strong hint that that that is the fake story.
