Still no CPUs to carry it
As promised earlier, AMD officially revived its FX brand during the E3 show in Los Angeles. Despite the official announcement of the FX brand, there was no talk regarding the launch of the first FX series CPUs based on Bulldozer architecture.

The FX brand will be based around AMD's Scorpius platform that will consist of AM3+ FX series CPUs, codename Zambezi, the recently launched AMD 9-series chipset and Radeon HD 6000 series graphics cards. AMD's Vice President of worldwide product marketing, Leslie Sobon said that AMD's FX brand will enable an over-the-top experience for PC enthusisast as well as an unrivaled feature set and amazing control over the PC performance by combining an unlocked, native eight-core CPU, latest chipset and AMD's latest graphics cards.

Unfortunately and despite the official announcement, we will not see the FX Series CPUs anytime soon as the recent rumours are pointing at September for availability.
