Wink AMD Bulldozer

okay, so, i'm not sure whether or not to believe this site, i got curious and found this link about the exact release date of the Bulldozer chipset. (meaning first time seeing/visiting this site)
AMD Bulldozer Zambezi-FX Processors Launching on September 19th, 2011 - Legit Reviews
it was posted roughly 1-3 hours ago according to google, and i would like to hear your opinions on what i should buy and when.

Should i buy the FX-8150 on the release date, or should i wait for the FX-8170 in Q1 of 2012 (unknown date) [ASSUMING THE PAGE IS TRUE]

i would like to hear your opinions.

I would probably wait until performance benchmarks on the 8150 come out and see how it stacks up to the i7 CPUs.

there already is an early release/leak benchmark of the FX-8130P (prototype i would assume), and it's pretty godly if you ask me...

It's most likely going to be mediocre, so wait for benchmarks. Also the Sept 19th date is not confirmed yet.
